When Rowan University’s master plan called for a strategic redefinition of the western edge of campus, our project management team worked with the university from initial planning phases to post-construction closeout services. Our team also coordinated the programming, design management, scheduling, budget cost control, and related activities. We also assisted in the university with funding: applying for bonds and procuring a $46M 2012 New Jersey Building Our Future Bond Act—the first bond to support University construction in New Jersey.
The new hall includes wet and dry laboratory spaces, experiential engineering spaces for undergraduate projects, research and classrooms tailored for biomedical, automotive, and electrical engineering, collaboration rooms, conference rooms, classrooms, offices, and STEM-focused program spaces. Accessibility of the building allows for students to move from the facility directly to the existing Rowan Hall through an elevated pedestrian bridge.
The new, three-story Engineering Hall facilitates the growth of the University, which nearly doubled in five years. The building is a marquee project that encourages hands-on learning for a variety of shapes and sizes, while offering a multitude of specialties in Engineering.
