Maureen Murphy Wilkens Science Center

Emmanuel College

The new Maureen Murphy Wilkens Science Center project encompassed the construction of a 56,000 square-foot science center, a 60,000 square-foot, 120-car, underground garage and the renovation of more than 127,000 square feet in two additional buildings in the midst of Emmanuel College’s busy campus. 

“The open, constant, and comfortable working relationship among the design team, the College, and Walsh's team was central to the success of the project. The quality of construction was consistently high, the complex, challenging process that led to it was a credit to the professionalism and experience of the Walsh staff on the project. They produced a beautifully made building that will help Emmanuel flourish as an educational institution.”

The Wilkens Science Center provides space for interdisciplinary sciences including student study and faculty areas, as well as 14 teaching laboratories for biology, biochemistry, chemistry, physics, psychology, and plant ecology, and is designed to LEED Silver standards. The utmost care and caution were taken to ensure that student activities were not disrupted and that safety standards were maintained at all times.
