VERTEX’s subsidiary, Compass Project Management, Inc. (Compass), is serving as the Owner’s Project Manager for the new Boston University Center for Computing & Data Sciences Project. The Boston University Center for Computing & Data Sciences, a 19-story, nearly 350,000 square foot building, will be the tallest building on campus at 297 feet high. It will house the Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science Departments along with the Rafik B. Hariri Institute for Computing and Computational Science & Engineering. Designed by the Toronto architectural firm KPMB Architects, the building’s iconic form resembling a stack of books will feature a series of terraced platforms, intended for small-group interactions and green technologies to advance BU’s Climate Action Plan and to account for the risks posed by increases in sea level and climate change. The building is the first major teaching center built on the Charles River Campus in over 50 years.
