Ramapo College Dormitory and Dining Hall

McLaren Engineering Group completed structural engineering and design services on a Ramapo College’s five-story, 67,000-square-foot dormitory and 8,000 square-foot dining hall in Mahwah, NJ. Working with Comerro Coppa Architects, McLaren helped Ramapo College kick off a multi-phase capital program with this phase one multi-building project.

The McLaren Difference: Applied Ingenuity

McLaren provided structural and foundation design services on Ramapo College’s new dormitory and dining hall. The first floor of the dormitory consisted of a concrete slab on grade, while all other floors were precast planks on load-bearing masonry walls. The project also included an adjoining single-story, 8,000-square-foot dining hall. The roof of the dining hall was constructed using bar joist steel girders and metal decks, supported by steel columns and spread footings.
