Ann Beha Architects, Boston
DesignLab Architects, Inc., Boston
Machado and Silvetti Associates, Boston

The firms were chosen from 56 submissions for “displaying a sophisticated understanding of the issues involved in renovating historically significant buildings and experience with rehabilitations of complex modern structures,” according to the OBO. “Each presented a diversity of projects which displayed a strong use of materials and context, and demonstrated experience with design and construction of facilities in a campus setting.”

The firms will submit detailed information on their organization and qualifications for the second stage of evaluation.
