MMA Interior is Coming Along

The interior of the new ABS Information Commons at the Massachusetts Maritime Academy is taking shape almost as quickly as the exterior now.


Third and fourth deck interior showing "drum" which will house a Bridge Simulator for training students in large ship maneuvers. It will be able to simulate any harbor in the world, under any weather condition.


First and second deck interior showing "drum" which will house a 50 seat smart classroom at the first floor and reader spaces with archival maritime artifacts at the second floor.


Window wall showing structural support for wind load (columns at interior), and for exterior solar shading (columns at exterior).
