Princeton University is adding a new Environmental Studies and School of Engineering and Applied Science neighborhood that is carefully integrated into the surrounding context. The structural systems of the four new buildings were developed with sustainability in mind, including significant portions of each superstructure comprised of mass timber. Framing through the ES and SEAS buildings consists primarily of Acoustic Dowel-Laminated Timber (DLT) floor and roof panels supported by Glulam post and beam framing. The Princeton Commons features two-way hybrid timber-steel diagrids forming the third floor and roof structure, supporting Acoustic DLT.

StructureCraft appreciates the opportunity to work with Princeton University, Ennead Architects, LERA, and The Whiting-Turner Contracting Company on this landmark addition to a historical university campus. Completion is targeted for 2025. The ES and SEAS project will be an example of modern technology and sustainability in the built environment.

Timber install is currently underway.
