TFMoran engineers worked with landscape architects Derck & Edson to provide civil/site design services for the expansion and renovations of the Saint Anselm College Student Center. The existing 40,704sf Cushing Center now connects to the Stoutenburgh Gymnasium and was expanded by 12,575sf, for a total of 53,280sf, creating a new complex. Located in the center of campus, this dynamic new gathering place was designed to serve students in many ways, and is now named the Roger & Francine Jean Student Center Complex.
Originally built in 1960, the existing building was transformed to increase functionality by updating and enlarging space for community gathering and activities for today’s students. Academic, spiritual and social components of college life is integrated into one central hub, continuing the College’s commitment to living learning communities. New features include a campus store/bookstore, a café, a second floor glass-windowed function room, and a 250-seat auditorium. The project architect, BHDP Architecture, maintained the Georgian architecture design elements featured throughout the campus. Eckman Construction of Bedford, NH was the Construction Manager.
