A project to fix water damage and restore the Dean's Study in the University Chapel is but one example of the craftsmanship we hope to achieve in Facilities, everyday.
PRINCETON — From one end of Princeton University to the other this summer, dust clouds have been rising from construction activity, rivets have been pounded, widgets have been installed, towers of glass and steel have materialized, and artificial turf has taken the place of grass. The activity started even before students closed their books last spring and headed off for summer break; and it will continue this fall as Princeton students file back into classrooms and laboratories for anoth
Building Information Modeling or "BIM" is a process used by architects and engineers to design and document buildings in three dimensions and depict each building component with better tolerances than traditional methods. Princeton’s adoption of BIM has streamlined the construction process and provided new ways to think about how we manage buildings.
Designed by Davis Brody & Associates, Hoyt Laboratory was completed in 1979. The building contains research area, instructional space, and faculty office space. This renewal project will provide new mechanical, electrical, and laboratory systems for the building.
The Princeton University Facilities organization works aggressively to reduce the amount of energy used by the campus. This new website talks about some of the many ways we are striving towards our sustainability goals.
The University has posted a story about the opening of the High-Performance Computing Research Center at Forrestal campus.
Restoration activities include grading and reshaping the streambed and stream banks as well as planting some 300 new trees and over 2000 other plants. The project is expected to be completed this spring when Grounds and Building Maintenance workers finish the plantings.
Two "micro-steam" power-generating systems in Dillon are helping the University realize a key part of its sustainability plan.
Princeton University plans to build a facility to house its high-performance computing research systems on the Forrestal Campus in Plainsboro about three miles north of the main campus.
