Green campus center under way at Richard Stockton College

November 01, 2008 |

Construction is under way on a 153,000-sf campus center at the Richard Stockton College of New Jersey in Pomona, N.J. Designed by KSS Architects, Princeton, N.J., with VMDO Architects, Charlottesville, Va., as associate architect, the campus center is the largest individual building project in the school's history. The design team is striving for LEED Gold certification for the building, which will run on the campus's existing geothermal well field and harvest stormwater for irrigating an onsite rain garden. Large translucent skylights allow natural light to reach deep inside the building.

The design of the building draws inspiration from Stockton's picturesque setting in the New Jersey Pinelands, with outstretched trusses, evocative of tree branches, and structural columns inside and outside the building. Completion: early 2011.
