Cerami’s goal in designing the AV, IT, Security and Acoustics at Princeton’s new residential colleges was connections: to campus, to athletics, to recreation, to community and to each other. To that end, we designed an almost completely wireless environment, where residents can eat, sleep, study, socialize, work out and work with invisible infrastructure that is always there to support them. The smart security knows who is permitted where and when and is again, invisible. As are the acoustics, which enhance each space and cater to the particular amenity.
Signature Solution: Cerami received the Leading Infrastructure Project Award from New Jersey’s Alliance for Action for our collaboration on advancing one of Princeton’s highest strategic priorities – the expansion of their residential colleges, serving an additional 500 students, and striving towards a completely wireless environment.
According to the Alliance for Action, this award was given to those “pioneering and landmark construction initiatives that greatly impact the state’s economy.”
