Women Leading Design + Development for Benjamin Franklin Cummings Institute of Technology

Four Seasons Boston
200 Boylston Street, Boston MA

Public

The Benjamin Franklin Cummings Institute of Technology has embarked on a vital transformation from a technical/vocational post-secondary school into a 21st century hub for workforce development, offering technology-focused, vocational, and green economy educational programs.  The college serves primarily Black, Latinx and Asian students most low-income, first-generation college students and some are the first in their families to graduate high school. Finding such future forward technical education hampered by their 104-year-old Berkeley Street location, the college is developing a new campus in Roxbury’s historic Nubian Square.

The new campus development and design team is substantially led by women. CEO and President Dr. Aisha Francis, the college’s first woman and first person of color to lead the institution, is a champion for its students and the college’s critical mission and vision for the future. She is joined on the panel by:
  • Development Consultant Marty Jones, Principal, MLJ Insights and CREW member
  • Project Architect Gail Sullivan, Managing Principal of Studio G Architects and CREW member
  • Associate Architect Natasha Espada, Principal of Studio Enée
  • Landscape Architect Shauna Gillies Smith, Principal of Ground, Inc.
The panel will discuss BFCIT’s impact on the life trajectory of students and their families; the new campus’ impact on Nubian Square and the transformation underway; meeting funding and development challenges with a project linked to redevelopment of the historic Berkeley St property; the building’s inspirational, high-performance design to meet educational, economic, sustainability and resilience goals; and how the building and landscape design contribute to this historic neighborhood.
