St. Peter’s Preparatory School, Moriarty Science Center

The centerpiece of BBB’s master plan for St. Peter’s Preparatory School is the conversion of an existing campus building into the Moriarty Science Center, a new state-of-the-art science education facility.

BBB has converted the 45-year old Burke Hall at St. Peter’s Preparatory School into the Moriarty Science Center, heralding a new era of scientific education at the school. Exterior modifications include the creation of a new primary entry to the school, greater visibility on the street level, and enlarged windows on the second and third floor to allow for more natural light and ventilation into classrooms and labs. Interior modifications include the addition of a school information center, nine science laboratories and classrooms as well as academic and administrative offices.
