Rutgers University – 250th Anniversary Plaza

Rutgers University commenced the 250th anniversary of its founding with the opening of a new Academic Building and Plaza on the College Avenue Campus in New Brunswick. The oval shaped plaza is located north of the new academic building, the first academic facility to be built on the College Avenue campus since the 1970s. The plaza includes pavers underlain by a concrete slab and a curved seat wall. Langan provided civil engineering plans and the structural design of the seat wall foundation, paver slab, and tent supports. The foundation design includes a specific detail which will span the seat-wall foundation over the previously installed high temperature hot water lines. We also coordinated the grading and site design with the landscape architects.
