New England Conservatory


Boston, MA

Project Scale


Mixed-use educational, theatrical, & residential student building.

The New England Conservatory of Music (NEC) in Boston, Massachusetts, is the oldest independent school of music in the United States, and it is widely recognized as one of the country's most distinguished music schools.

As the culmination of an intensive six-year planning process, New England Conservatory’s Board of Trustees approved the construction of the new Student Life and Performance Center (SLPC). The project represents NEC’s first new building since 1959 and houses a 250-bed residence hall, dining commons, library and music archive, gathering spaces, an opera studio/black box theatre, orchestra rehearsal room, and small ensemble room.

Colliers Project Leaders was engaged by the school to provide Owner’s Project Management (OPM) services related to the development of the new Student Life and Performing Center.
