Barr & Barr is proud to announce that we have been selected to build the new Central Research & Materials Testing Laboratory for the Massachusetts Department of Transportation. We join the team of City Point Partners who represent MASS DOT and Elkus Manfredi Architects who are the lead architects and designers on the project.

The new partial one and two story, 47,180SF Central Research and Materials Testing Laboratory will house 76 employees. The primary function of this facility will be to perform sampling and testing of materials used on highway and bridge projects.

This building will encompass material testing labs, material storage, moist cure room, a records storage room, training and conference rooms, and various mechanical rooms.

The new Central and Research Materials Laboratory is scheduled to open its doors in Westboro/Hopkinton, Massachusetts in July of 2016.
