Under construction | Hofstra University Center for Science and Innovation
Structure Tone has begun construction on a new, $75M Center for Science and Innovation that will be shared by the Hofstra Northwell School of Nursing and Physician Studies and the Fred DeMatteis School of Engineering and Applied Science. Both schools are expanding and will make use of the 75,000sf facility to meet demands for growing numbers of science, engineering, and nursing students. The new building will have labs and simulation facilities for nursing students, as well as advanced labs for science and engineering majors. It will be located on South Campus, east of the Leo A. Guthart Hall for Innovation and Discovery at the Frank G. Zarb School of Business.
Construction is expected to be completed next winter. Right now, the team is focused on maintaining their commitment to quality and safety. Currently, the cumulative TRIR is 0.0, compared to the industry average of 2.8 in 2021. The team has already been a part of three safety awards while submitting weekly pre-task plans and toolbox talks. As these numbers attest, Structure Tone is raising the industry standard of safety.
“Hofstra University finds Structure Tone’s safety approach to be leading the industry and has set the benchmark high,” says Richard Leddy, assistant VP of new construction at Hofstra.
