CCH IS AWARDED AIA NJ MERIT AWARD FOR EXCELLENCE IN ARCHITECTURE
Clarke Caton Hintz is pleased to announce that we have won a “Merit Award for Excellence in Architecture” from the AIA NJ for the renovation of Tillett Hall at Rutgers University. Tillett Hall, a 45 year-old, outdated dining facility was transformed into a modern, vibrant, state of the art classroom building. Key parts of the building were stripped down to the essential structure and wholly reconfigured to provide 20 new classrooms and auditoriums of various sizes and configurations; computer labs; and a package delivery hub. The project involved a complicated phasing plan to allow the building to be occupied during the construction process. The project was designed to achieve a LEED Silver certification level and is Rutgers first all-LED lit building. Most of the building’s energy use is provided by the Livingston Campus’ massive solar array. The design award jury commended CCH for its color and material selections that brought new life and vitality to this formerly unloved building.
