TOTAL SQUARE FOOTAGE:
Multiple projects over a 20-year span, with over 400,000 sq. ft. constructed.
Torcon has completed a wide variety of projects over the past twenty years at Seton Hall University’s South Orange campus. Our relationship began with a seven-story, 125,000 square-foot dormitory designed to accommodate 522 students. The dormitory was completed on a fast-tack, 12-month schedule from design development to occupancy. The project also included a 155,000 square-foot recreation center addition to the University’s Walsh Gym complex. The new building features a NCAA-regulation indoor swimming pool and a large multipurpose area that can be configured as a running track, or several basketball/volleyball/tennis courts. Additional facilities are provided for racquetball, exercise studios and weight rooms. Both the dormitory and recreation center use under-building parking.
Torcon subsequently added three new dormitories to the campus, also under fast-track schedules, as well as a new parking structure adjacent to Walsh Gym.
More recently, Torcon added a 120,000 square-foot, six-story academic support building in the center of campus. Jubilee Hall was completed under a design/build contract and was awarded under a design competition with competitive pricing. The building house two levels of classroom space and four levels of departmental offices, plus a 350-seat auditorium with a state-of-the-art audio/video system. All academic spaces were designed with complete computer and multimedia capabilities. Jubilee Hall is also home to SHU’s W. Paul Stillman School of Business, as well as the psychology, public health and education departments. Faculty offices on the upper floors surround an enclosed, three-story high sky-lit courtyard featuring limestone surfaces and a Travertine stairway. A dedicated staff library is also provided.
Most recently, Torcon completed construction of three new projects for Seton Hall. The demolition and replacement of Stafford Hall, a three-story classroom building; the expansion and upgrade of Aquinas Hall, an on-campus residential facility; and a five-story addition to the on-campus parking deck.
