GREYHAWK Fall 2017: Project Awards, News, Quick and Simple Tips, and more.
Rutgers-Camden Nursing & Science Building Ribbon-Cutting
The award-winning facility opened to students for the 2017-2018 academic year.

GREYHAWK teammates were on hand September 25 for the official ribbon-cutting at the Rutgers-Camden Nursing and Science Building in Camden, N.J. The award-winning 100,000-square-foot facility opened to students for the start of the 2017-2018 academic year.

Successful project completion marks a significant milestone. GREYHAWK provided owner's representation from pre-construction through post-construction occupancy.

"In every project, we are inspired to make a lasting impact," said GREYHAWK Principal Ronald C. Kerins, Jr., CCM LEED AP. "In the case of the new Nursing and Science Building, that impact will be felt in a generation of health professionals who begin their training in this building."

Kerins was joined at the ribbon-cutting by fellow HAWKS Joseph Brownmiller, Tom Dills, Shawn Toal, and Kathy Kostiuk.

The 100,000-square-foot Nursing and Science Building serves more than 1,000 students in the Rutgers School of Nursing-Camden and also supports students in Rutgers-Camden's Ph.D. in computational and integrative biology and doctor of nursing practice (DNP) programs. The facility includes classrooms, computer labs, conference rooms, lecture halls, student work and study stations, administrative offices, lounges, food service, and an auditorium.
The $62.5 million project was financed, in part, by proceeds from the Building Our Future Bond Act, a $750 million loan and grant program approved by New Jersey voters in a 2012 ballot referendum.

In February 2017, the facility was named  a 2017 New Jersey's Leading Infrastructure Project by the New Jersey Alliance for Action.

Groundbreaking Ceremony at the New Seaman Avenue Elementary School in Perth Amboy

A groundbreaking ceremony was held Thursday, October 5, 2017 to commemorate the start of construction on the new Seaman Avenue Elementary School in Perth Amboy, New Jersey. The $56.4 million project is funded by the New Jersey Schools Development Authority (NJSDA) with construction by the design-build team of Epic Management, Inc. and the DIGroupArchitecture, LLC. GREYHAWK was retained by the NJSDA to provide CM/owner's representative services. When completed, the new school will be a LEED certified, state-of-the-art, three-story, 128,000-sf facility designed to educate approximately 724 students in grades K-5.
In addition to five very excited students who will attend the school upon its completion in 2019, the ceremony was well attended by past and present school board members, school officials, local and state government officials, NJSDA officials, and members of the construction team. HAWKs Charles Caramanna, Grayling Johnson, Tania Rabitsky, and Anthony David were also on hand.

The project marks the fourth school to be built by the NJSDA in the Perth Amboy School District. Both NJSDA CEO Charles McKenna and Perth Amboy Mayor Wilda Diaz noted the NJSDA commitment to Perth Amboy and expressed their excitement about the long-awaited project.

GREYHAWK Quick and Simple Tips
By Charles F. Boland, P.E., GREYHAWK
Successfully managing construction risk requires objectivity and perspective.
Effective risk management demands a commitment by each stakeholder to ensure that risks are discretely identified, objectively assessed, and actively managed throughout the planning, design, and construction process. Construction professionals who address risks and problems every day develop a knowledge base. This unique perspective positions them to most effectively identify and mitigate the myriad issues that arise in design, procurement, scope management, approvals, construction, and timely completion of a project.
