Bond, a Boston-based construction management firm, said that it has completed construction of a two-phase infrastructure upgrade to the Barus & Holley Hall/Prince Laboratory Building, the largest research facility on the Brown University campus. 

The upgrade included a new fire alarm system, modernized elevators, and replacement of the building’s air handling unit. The building’s chiller plant and cooling towers, heat exchanger, electrical switchgear, and summer boilers have also been replaced.

Built in 1965, the seven-story, 220,000 square-foot Barus & Holley/Prince Laboratory Building houses the university’s engineering and physics departments and includes 117 laboratories, 150 offices, 15 classrooms, 29 laboratory classrooms, and three lecture halls.
