The BCT DesignBuild Site is an on-campus 50′ x 100′ fully-equipped construction site that supports our DesignBuild program and other full- or mockup-scale academic construction projects. It is located conveniently on East Pleasant street in Amherst, at the northeastern edge of campus.

The main use of this site is for the UMass DesignBuild Program, which is a collaborative effort between UMass Building & Construction Technology, UMass Architecture, and Five College Architectural Studies. Follow the links below to learn more about this effort.
