UMASS Medical School Wins Award from CMAA

A construction project for the University of Massachusetts Medical School has been named “Project of the Year” in its size category by the New England Chapter of the Construction Management Association of America (CMAA), reports Mark Warren, national commissioning leader and senior vice president in WSP’s Boston office, which provided commissioning services for the project.


The new nine-story, 500,000-square-foot Albert Sherman Center and 1,200-car parking garage in Worcester, MA, won the honor in the category of “construction value greater than $100 million.”

“Commissioning, which involves verification of facility and system performance, is a critical part of any project,” says Mr. Warren, who served as the project leader.  “But it’s especially important for complex construction such as the Albert Sherman Center, which includes state-of-the-art laboratories and a vivarium.”

The project was completed in 2012 and received LEED® Gold certification.  It was designed by ARC, and the general contractor was Suffolk Construction. 

“WSP really enjoyed working on this team,” notes Mr. Warren.  “And we’re pleased that the CMAA has recognized the team’s work.”
