Project Description:


Formerly known as Partridge Hall (old School of Business), the new School of Nursing & Graduate School is a transformation of an existing four-story, 49,000 SF building located at the heart of Montclair State University’s campus in Montclair, NJ. The project entailed a complete interior renovation providing state-of-the-art facilities for the University’s burgeoning nursing program as well as our graduate studies program.

Three floors are dedicated to the school of nursing clinical training program. Work included a modern nursing skills laboratory, simulation labs with observation rooms, a mock quarantine room, debriefing rooms, anatomy and physiology labs, support and prep space as well as renovations to existing tiered lecture halls and faculty offices.

Student amenity space was augmented to include vastly improved lounge space for impromptu student get-togethers and study sessions. The building was improved to respect the original architectural fabric of the campus in a post modern “Spanish Mission” revival style.
