JBC Associates was recently contracted by the Design-Builder of Penn State University’s first residence hall on the Brandywine campus to provide CPM scheduling services during construction. The new 80,000 GSF LEED certified building will feature 250 beds. Pursuing LEED certification is consistent with Penn State Brandywine’s commitment to sustainability and environmental preservation. The building is the first step in transitioning the traditionally commuter campus to include residence facilities for students. The new student residence is being constructed in conjunction with a new student union on the Middletown Township campus in Media, PA. The residence hall is scheduled to open Fall semester of 2017, a year that also marks the Penn State Brandywine campus’ 50th Anniversary!
