Building 6-120 Lecture Hall Renovation

Cambridge, MA

 

MDS has designed and implemented more than three dozen new and renovated classrooms and lecture halls for Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). These improvement projects are part of a campus-wide upgrade program initiated by the Registrar’s Office to provide high-tech resources to support faculty in new pedagogical initiatives. Work has included the integration of technology, complete audio/visual upgrades, centralized controls, improved lighting and lighting controls, new furniture, media boards and interior finish treatments.

Our most recent renovation is of classroom 6-120 in Boynton Hall. The 143-seat classroom had not been renovated since the late 1980s and was in need for and upgrade to support the current teaching curriculum. This project integrates state-of-the-art audio/visual equipment with lecture capture technologies, centralized controls, energy efficient LED lighting, new HVAC systems, new furniture with electrical outlets at each seat, wireless network access, new motorized shades, MAAB compliance upgrades, and interior finish improvements. The room is designed to achieve NC rating of 20-25 per MIT’s standards to assure optimal acoustics.
