Shad Hall – Wise Construction

Harvard Business School

Shad Hall

Renovations to the first floor transformed the main entry experience for students and faculty and enhanced staff operations. The main entrance was updated by opening up the lobby to the building’s atrium. Turnstiles with security card access were added to enhance the check-in experience and improve efficiency, and a new front desk for Operations was created. Improved work settings and ancillary support spaces feature new furniture and finishes, as well as acoustic enhancements that mitigate noise and vibration from the weight room located above the Member Service area.
