Williams College in Williamstown, Massachusetts.

Williams College’s new science center is finished and already filling up with faculty and students.

Williams College has completed work on a new science building after almost three years of construction. Mike Wood was the senior project manager.

“The overall project is a 78,000-square foot building, five stories tall with a mechanical penthouse above, and it houses the biology, physics, and chemistry departments,” Wood told WAMC.

He estimated the construction costs at around $66 million, part of a $204 million science renewal project on the northern Berkshire County campus. The building is now open and faculty have already moved in.

Josh Landes has been WAMC's Berkshire Bureau Chief since February 2018, following stints at WBGO Newark and WFMU East Orange. A passionate advocate for Western Massachusetts, Landes was raised in Pittsfield and attended Hampshire College in Amherst, receiving his bachelor's in Ethnomusicology and Radio Production. His free time is spent with his cat Harry, experimental electronic music, and exploring the woods.
