MIT had additional space needs, calling for a childcare center as an addition to the Cambridge campus. The need had to be met in short order and they turned to Triumph as a leader in modular construction to help. The 14,000 square foot steel and concrete building was fabricated at N.R.B. in Pennsylvania and shipped to Vassar Street in Cambridge.
This facility incorporates advanced design features such as integrated video monitors in the lobby, custom casework throughout, varied and aesthetically appealing floor covering, exposed mechanicals to maximize ceiling height, storefront glass in the stairwells to create an open illusion, oversized exterior glazing to allow light exchange and give a connected feeling with the outdoors.
All of this was accomplished in 6 months from design to the occupancy timetable. Triumph was able to limit the site disruption spending only 8 weeks on site. This was important for the comfort and convenience of the teachers and students who were occupying the existing school.
Triumph managed the execution of the David H Koch Childcare Center from the design phase throughout delivery, and installation including the playground and landscaping.
