JCJ served as campus architects to Choate and completed numerous projects, ranging from aesthetic and maintenance upkeep to major remodeling and additions to campus buildings. A common consideration through each project was to maintain the traditional character of exteriors to fit harmoniously with the campus’ existing character.
Select Projects Included:
Humanities Building - Conversion of a science building into a humanities building that included classrooms, seminar rooms and lecture halls.
Memorial House - Renovation and expansion of a freshman boy's dormitory with the adaptive reuse of the attic into living space.

Nichols Building - Renovation of girl's freshman dorm
Steele Hall - Renovation of language arts building that includes classroom and seminar space.
