Whitman College, Princeton. NJ

The final project totaled $140 million for a 500 bed dormitory complex that consisted of 10 separate buildings joined by a network of stair tower structures and hallways. The construction of this complex was reminiscent of how building was performed 100 years ago. The walls were built with 8 inch stone and block, copper and tile for roofing, leaded glass for windows, as well as other materials that would give the new facility a cohesive look with many of the existing structures on campus.

Although potentially one year behind schedule, Mr. Giaramita, along with Mr. Cardozo and the Princeton Team, implemented several measures that made it possible to deliver the project complete, on time and on budget, while meeting the University’s quality expectation. 500 new students were accommodated as initially planned.
