Behrakis Health Sciences Center

Northeastern University

The Behrakis Health Sciences Center is a signature structure on the Northeastern University campus. This spectacular 120,000-square-foot building has become a campus landmark bridging the university’s residential and academic campuses by way of a landscaped promenade. Students enter the building from the landscaped terrace above a 300-car underground garage. Featuring a unique four-sided structurally-glazed curtain wall façade, the building contains two overlapping atriums, creating a soaring three-story entrance and lobby. The elegant lower atrium is finished with granite, marble, terrazzo, and cherry wood.

“Walsh Brothers' field team was diligent in meeting a fast-track schedule and tight budget on what was a very complex project.”
