Five College Library Annex Recognized as an Outstanding Design-Build Project - An Award-Winning Collaboration

The success of the project, having maximized the value and efficiencies of taking a design-build approach, is proven by the numbers. “Given the complexities of the site prep work and sophisticated building systems necessary for achieving the strict control of temperature and humidity, we are thrilled that the facility was completed on schedule and well under budget,” said Neal Abraham, Executive Director of Five Colleges, Inc.  

The new state-of-the-art facility serves students and faculty members from Amherst, Hampshire, Mount Holyoke and Smith colleges and the University of Massachusetts Amherst – collectively known as the Five College Consortium.
