Rutgers University, Livingston Campus

Structure Tone provided project management services to Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, for the planning and construction of four projects on the Livingston Campus in Piscataway, NJ. 

Rutgers Business School (RBS): A new, 155,000sf, five-story academic building made up of two towers, North and South. The RBS building created a landmark gate-way to the Livingston Campus, and is ranked by online publication Top Management Degrees as one of the 50 most beautiful business schools in the world. RBS’s glass and metal exterior has a dramatic impact on those entering the campus. The North Tower primarily serves students, while the South Tower accommodates faculty and staff. The fifth floor bridges the two buildings, connecting the students and faculty. Overall, RBS possesses the feel of a corporate headquarters facility, which promotes interaction and community and provides the students with a real-world work environment.

Geothermal Field: To support the university’s green initiative, a half-acre geothermal field was built to heat and cool RBS year-round. The half-acre geothermal field, along with the solar canopy project built previously by Structure Tone, significantly reduces RBS’s and the overall university’s energy consumption and carbon footprint.

Solar Photo-Voltaic Canopy System: Installation of an eight megawatt photo-voltaic system (solar power system) that generates approximately $1.2 million in electricity to satisfy 63 percent of the electrical demand of the Livingston Campus.

Road Realignments: Roadwork to improve traffic flow and make the campus safer for students including a new traffic circle, curbing, sidewalks, paving, lighting, drainage and landscaping. A new modular bus shelter was built as a prototype for all future bus stops on campus.

“This has been a really fascinating project. There are so many diverse elements. One was the signature architecture, which has resulted in a stunning building, but that result was not achieved without challenge. To create the gateway there are four-story-high splayed columns that span the roadway. The columns are two feet in diameter and are angled. That required extremely precise engineering and erection planning.”—Chris Mills, Project Executive, Structure Tone
