CMAA New England Kicks Off 2018 with Harvard and What’s Happening in Allston

Boston, MA – January 16, 2018 – The New England Chapter of the Construction Management Association of America (CMAA NE) reached capacity at its January Breakfast Program with over 100 AEC practitioners, early career professionals, construction industry associates, and construction management students gathered at Wentworth’s Beatty Hall. An impressive sight (as pictured below), to see the entire room filled and listening intently to the presentation about Harvard University’s capital programs in the Allston area of campus.

Joe O’Farrell is the Managing Director of Harvard Capital Projects (HCP), with responsibility for Harvard’s campus growth in Allston, MA. HCP is managing the design, construction and occupancy of the approximately 500,000 gsf Science and Engineering Complex, a new District Energy Facility, a new ArtLab Facility, the renovation of some existing buildings and a significant Enabling program. Along with sharing information about these facilities, Joe was able to focus on institutional operations, expansion, automation, and building information systems. He also fielded questions about sustainability, resiliency, and pedestrian experiences. 

The next program will be in February and will feature a panel of influencers in the Science and Technology field. Be sure to keep an eye out for additional information and registration details in the coming weeks. CMAA NE’s Breakfast Programs are typically held on the third Tuesday of each month at Wentworth Institute of Technology’s Beatty Hall from 8:00 am to 9:00 am.  Breakfast and coffee starts at 7:30 am and everyone is encouraged to arrive early to network and socialize.

Finally, to all interested parties, CMAA NE is now accepting sponsors for the 2018 calendar year. To become a sponsor, please visit the website http://www.cmaa-ne.org. Deadline for full benefits is February 15, 2018.
