Radical renovation

Last modified: Sunday, January 10, 2016
It was a shock to pass the Smith College conference center Tuesday and see that the entire middle of the building had been removed. Considerable digging had been going on in front of the building, but this was radical.According to the college’s website, Smith is renovating the entrance and lobby of the Conference Center, which is on College Lane overlooking Paradise Pond and the falls. Weather permitting, construction (except for plantings) is scheduled for completion by mid-April, the website reports. Work started in mid-December. Two-way traffic on College Lane will continue with occasional interruptions for paving.Facilities management is working on the construction with Keiter Builders.
