March 27, 2024 – Back at Forsgate Country Club Wednesday morning, Alliance for Action members heard all the latest details on Princeton University’s capital plans. 

Executive Director of Construction Bill Bausmith outlined 14 active projects that are happening on campus right now, but says the peak of construction will be later this year in the fall of 2024. Princeton University is investing billions into revitalizing their campus buildings and expanding with new construction. 

A large focus for the University is geo-exchange technology, which uses a heat pump to store and retrieve heat from the earth. This technology is helping Princeton U with its 2026 & Beyond Sustainability Action Plan focusing on clean energy efforts. Click here to learn more about how it works. 

Many of Princeton’s current capital projects will be completed by 2027 with much more to come. Some main campus projects include: Dillon Gym, Hobson College, ES & SEAS, and TIGER. Bausmith also provided details on the construction ongoing at the West Windsor campus. Those projects include: Racquet and Recreation Center, Haaga House Athletic Building, Softball Stadium, Graduate Housing and more.

“It’s astonishing all the work that Princeton University is putting out,” Alliance for Action President Jerry Keenan said. “The Alliance for Action is looking forward to working with Bill Bausmith and his team to ensure these projects move quickly and efficiently.”

Bausmith and his team are ensuring Princeton University is expanding for the well-being of the student body and working towards meeting their clean energy goals. There are plenty of opportunities to come down the pipeline. 

The next Inside Scoop Series event will host PSE&G Gas Construction Team Mike Gaffney and Brian Clark on April 18th.
