Cerami Receives Leading Infrastructure Project Award from New Jersey’s Alliance for Action
Cerami, the largest woman-led acoustic and technology design consulting firm, was honored with New Jersey Alliance for Action’s “New Jersey’s Leading Infrastructure Projects” award for its collaboration on the Princeton University Residential Colleges project.
According to the Alliance for Action, this award, presented on February 17, 2021, was given to those “pioneering and landmark construction initiatives that greatly impact the state’s economy and to honor the businesses and organizations that work together as partners to ensure the project’s success.”
The Princeton University Residential Colleges project is a great example of what can be done when organizations work as a team to develop a fantastic project. Cerami joined with Deborah Berke Partners, lead architect, to advance one of Princeton’s highest strategic priorities — the expansion of residential colleges to serve an additional 500 students, striving toward a completely wireless environment.
Carmen Danescu, Cerami’s project manager for Princeton Residential Colleges #7 and #8, designed the way the new buildings, including dining, sleeping, cultural, learning and social spaces, connect through wireless infrastructure. Her team also designed the acoustics for the campus within a campus to make students feel at home in an inclusive university community. The residential college concept has been an innovative new way of combining student living and learning environments.
