New Campus Center
RP Masiello was engaged as the construction manager for Becker College’s new Campus Center. The George F. and Sybil H. Fuller Foundation Campus Center was completed in the Spring of 2012. The facility houses the college’s wellness center, student center, and a cafeteria.
The project was designed to blend classical architectural elements with a modern facility. The building was situated to enhance the natural elements and viewing angles of the campus. A bridge, highlighted by a tower, creating a focal icon, connects the new building to the existing campus.
Upon completion of the new campus center, RP Masiello was engaged for several additional projects, including restoration of the president’s office, the campus library and several new ancillary buildings on the campus. All of this construction activity was planned and executed with minimal disruption for students and faculty.
