Rutgers University – Richard Weeks Hall of Engineering


By combining the design for the adjacent road and regional stormwater basin with the Weeks Hall project, Langan was able to reduce construction costs by sharing stormwater management facilities and minimizing utility relocations.


measurable value

Early in the design process, Langan identified critical issues that needed to be addressed prior to construction of Rutgers University Richard Weeks Hall of Engineering. These critical issues included regional stormwater management planning, site circulation, utility relocations, permitting constraints, and replacement of on-site parking.

Langan’s regional stormwater approach not only addressed the current needs of the project, but also supports future developments within the 30-acre drainage area on Busch Campus. The new roadway adjacent to the building, which will be a part of a future campus loop, will provide vehicular circulation at the perimeter of the campus while limiting pedestrian and vehicular conflicts in the center of the campus.

By combining the design for the loop road and regional stormwater basin with the Weeks Hall project, Langan was able to reduce construction costs by sharing stormwater management facilities and minimizing utility relocations.

 

overview

Weeks Hall was designed to provide a state-of-the-art interdisciplinary facility designed to anchor the School of Engineering on the Busch campus and serve as a gateway for the next generation of engineers. The facility will feature smart classrooms and laboratory spaces, collaborative work space, dedicated student space, and advanced technology integration. Langan provided land-development engineering, utility design, soil erosion and sediment control permitting, geotechnical engineering, traffic engineering, environmental engineering, surveying services, and natural-resources permitting services on this challenging project.

HUMC – Emergency Trauma Department Expansion

OVERVIEW
The Hackensack University Medical Center (HUMC) is proposing to expand the Emergency Trauma Department (ETD) located at the hospital main campus in Hackensack, NJ. Site improvements associated with the ETD expansion consisted of a new 7,750-SF infill building addition, reconfiguration of the access drives servicing the emergency room ambulance drop-off area, and widening a roadway to provide an ambulance staging area and police / emergency vehicle parking area. Langan coordinated extensively with the project architect and client during the design process. The HUMC timeline was considered a fast track process; since Langan performed several disciplines in house, we were able to expedite the design process.

Montclair State University – The Heights

OVERVIEW
The first “Public Private Partnership” enabled by the New Jersey Economic Stimulus Act of 2009, this $200-million project is privately financed and adds 2,000 new beds and 24,000 SF of dining capacity on Montclair State University’s campus. This particular site was a rock quarry and posed many design challenges including steep slopes and shallow rock. Design had to accommodate a very aggressive schedule and budget goals as well as maintaining active utilities and roadways. Langan performed a site-specific shear wave velocity test which allowed the site classification to be upgraded. The result of the upgrade resulted in a 10% saving of the building superstructure cost. This project received LEED Silver certification by the USGBC.
