On back-to-back days earlier this month, Endicott opened its doors to two of the college’s newest and most innovative buildings – the Ginger Judge Science Center Expansion and the Samuel Wax Academic Center. Located in the center of the idyllic, seaside campus, the near-simultaneous opening of these two buildings signifies just how fast the Endicott College campus is transforming to accommodate growing enrollment and more diverse fields of study.
The four-story Ginger Judge Science Center Expansion ties directly into the existing Ginger Judge Science Center and features an entire floor dedicated to engineering studies along with incubator and makerspace labs, classrooms, and offices. The first floor also features a new college tavern called Gully’s – a nod to the school mascot – that has been eagerly anticipated by students.
The Samuel Wax Academic Center is the first of two state-of-the-art buildings that together will serve as the campus anchor for years to come. The 106,000 square-foot facility will be home to the school’s arts and sciences, education, communication, and hospitality departments, as well as the Van Loan School of Graduate & Professional Studies.
“We squeezed a whole lot of programming into this building and I think it will work very well for the school,” said Lee Dellicker, CEO at Windover Construction. “We’re very thankful and honored to be a part of this team.”
Windover is incredibly proud of our lasting partnership with Endicott College. During the Master Planning phase, Endicott enlisted Windover’s services to help assess options for adding much-needed program space on campus. Windover worked as the design-build lead and collaborated with Bergmeyer Associates and SV Design to execute Endicott College’s vision for the advanced facilities.
“The new Wax center blends into our beautiful campus and is poised to become a vital part of our academic community,” said Dr. Laura Rossi-Le, the Vice President and Dean of the Undergraduate College.
With several major projects still in the pipeline, Endicott is poised to continue it’s remarkable ascension as one of the top colleges in the region.
