    The Ira Allen Facebook page was created by BOND Brothers for the project. One of BOND's primary goals is to stay in touch with students and faculty of WIT, before, during and after the construction process. Check this link frequently for updates.

Ira Allen Expansion and Renovation

The project includes the construction of an 18,000 square foot addition to the Annunciation Way side and the renovation of the existing 15,000 square foot on the Parker Street side of the Ira Allen Building, providing new state of the art teaching laboratories, classrooms and offices to Wentworth’s College of Arts and Sciences. The development of this new facility will allow the academic departments to significantly improve the instructional technology and lab equipment utilized in their experiential, “hands-on,” approach to pedagogy. In addition, the development of this new addition will allow for significant improvements to the circulation pattern and accessibility within the main building. The height of this addition will be complimentary and respectful to the scale and materials of the existing building and the neighborhood.
