Massachusetts Institute of Technology Partnership, Cambridge, MA

Syska Hennessy Group’s enduring relationship with Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) exemplifies our shared approach to meeting and exceeding client expectations.

Syska’s vertical transportation experts provide engineering consulting and design services for new and existing elevators across MIT’s campus; our work includes due diligence studies, traffic studies, design development reviews, construction administration, and full modernization specifications.

Over the past 15 years, Syska has prepared unique modernization manuals for 20 separate buildings, including a total of 42 elevators. We develop preventative maintenance specifications which provide complete protection to users and simplify equipment maintenance for staff.

Factored into each elevator design – whether the systems are new or existing – is a cab aesthetic that complements each building’s use, architecture, and history. Our commitment to sustainability is also reflected in our choice of energy efficient lighting and controls.

We recognize the innovative and evolving climate of the educational and laboratory atmosphere and are proud that our projects have a key part in facilitating and enhancing MIT’s diverse campus.

Projects include:

  • MIT Main Campus
  • Sloan School of Management
  • Graduate Residence Halls
  • MIT Media Lab
  • Barker Engineering Library (“Great Dome”)
  • David H. Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research
