Office Space: Design and Construction

Located in the Physical Plant building next to Campus Police, the Design and Construction Department is responsible for the "oversight and management of facilities, planning and design at Amherst College." As the college's physical form has evolved, the department has collected the souvenirs of a growing institution: construction scraps, hidden treasures uncovered by countless renovations and even a pair of postmodern mistakes. Tom Davies, the director of design and construction, shows us around.
