Center for Development Economics

Williams College, Williamstown, MA

GMS provided structural engineering services for a new timber-framed, two story residence hall which houses 28 individual master’s degree candidates.

The new Hall is adjacent to historic St. Anthony Hall, and is the first Net Zero Energy building on the Williams campus. It incorporates geothermal wells and rooftop solar panels. The Center offers a master’s program for economists from low and middle-income countries who have some practical experience, emphasizing analytical techniques helpful to policymakers.
