Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the United States Senate
- SERVICE LINE: Project Management
- PROJECT TYPE: Museum / Conference
- SQUARE FOOTAGE: 73,000
The Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the United States Senate is located on the UMASS Boston campus adjacent to the JFK Library. The museum’s mission is to educate the public and continue the study of the legislative process using the Senate as a tool. The heart of the project is a full-scale Senate Chamber replica, which was created using modern construction techniques. The chamber is surrounded by a U-shaped audiovisual exhibit space and grand entry lobby. The program includes a replica of the Senator’s office, five classrooms, staff offices, archive/scholar spaces, a gift shop and café. Northstar staff led the project team from conception through construction; overseeing all design and consultant firms, and integrating the Owner’s technology and exhibit design teams. The team successfully overcame budget obstacles, contaminated landfill site conditions, land/infrastructure challenges with the JFK Library and a unique public/private ownership structure.
