VERTEX’s subsidiary, Compass Project Management, Inc. (Compass), assisted the UMass Charlton College of Business with an expansion to its existing facility, which was completed in 2004. The new space includes classrooms, meeting spaces, an auditorium fully equipped with the latest digital media, and technology-enhanced areas. The Learning Pavilion is an architectural “gateway” providing a clear, accessible entry point to the inner academic campus from adjacent parking lots. The new state-of-the-art building includes a pre-function reception area and an atrium lobby with an integral trading area. The second floor houses two breakout rooms with digital media, one graduate case study room, a group study alcove, and two 45-50 person technology-enhanced learning spaces. The third floor allows for four 6-8 person breakout rooms.
