Institutional Building Design in New Brunswick, NJ

Creating an Institutional Building Design to Compliment Future Student Housing Facilities

The goal of this Rutgers University project was to create a program study for a new dormitory project to ensure all future residence hall buildings followed similar institutional building design standards. The project included an analysis of construction types, project delivery methods and building layouts for the proposed 600-bed undergraduate student-housing complex to be built in phases.

Summit Engineering provided assistance to an architect on the program study phase of this new dormitory project. Multiple institutional building design layouts and construction options were studied including structural steel, composite steel, cold-formed steel, concrete, masonry and timber framing. Consideration of project delivery method included research of proprietary framing systems as well as modular and site-built options. The project is intended to provide the university with a prototype for subsequent student housing in other locations.
