Camden, New Jersey
GREYHAWK served as owner’s representative for construction of an award-winning new facility that serves more than 1,000 students in the School of Nursing and supports students in other science programs. In response to changing models in healthcare delivery, education, and science learning, the LEED Silver certified architecture features various academic teaching spaces, classrooms, labs, conference rooms, lecture halls, student work and study stations, administrative offices, lounges, food service, and an auditorium. Hands-on laboratories offer students realistic hospital, outpatient, and home care settings to refine their skills in different real-world environments. The project serves as a figural and literal link between Rutgers-Camden and Cooper Medical School, a first step toward expanding the campus and establishing an unofficial “Eds and Meds” corridor through Camden.
GREYHAWK provided pre-construction, construction, and post-construction phase services, including obtaining use of an adjacent parking lot to compensate for limited material lay-down space on site. GREYHAWK also facilitated a request to have students in labs before the building was substantially complete, accomplished by coordinating life-safety and egress work to allow for temporary occupancy prior to phased move-in of all users.
