Boston University, Sumner M. Redstone Building and Law Tower


Location: Boston, Massachusetts
Owner: Boston University
Client: Skanska USA Building
Architect: Brunner/Cott & Associates
Engineer: BR+A

Project Summary

The Sumner M. Redstone building is a 100,000 square foot, 5-story facility constructed for classrooms, gathering space and an expanded library. The  Law Tower is a renovated 18-story building that houses administrative departments, faculty offices and mock courtrooms.


The original electrical contractor went out of business mid-construction. State Electric took on the challenge of completing the project without disrupting continuity, and avoiding scheduling impacts.


State immediately assembled a dedicated hands on management team. Through field, supervision and management communication all electrical systems were analyzed, the site was re-tooled, re-staffed, and supply chains reestablished within days.
