TESU Unveils Glen Cairn Hall

Thomas Edison State University’s unveils its newest building, Glen Cairn Hall, which has transformed the intersection of West State and Calhoun streets in downtown Trenton. The facility, home to the university’s W. Cary Edwards School of Nursing, has transformed one of the city’s key gateways. The 36,360-square-foot building includes new, state-of-the-art nursing simulation laboratories, lecture halls, conference rooms and a student advising center. The building also has a two-level parking garage that provides secure, onsite parking for more than 90 vehicles. Glen Cairn Hall is expected to earn LEED Silver certification by the U.S. Green Building Council for being resource efficient.

The total project cost was approximately $26.2 million, including: $1.5 million for demolition of the Glen Cairn Arms and site remediation and preparation; and $24.7 million for design and construction of the Nursing Education Center. Approximately $12.7 million of the project cost is funded by the Building Our Futures Bond Act, approved by New Jersey voters in 2012.

On hand at the event were: Trenton Mayor Eric Jackson; Brian T. Maloney, chair of the Thomas Edison State University Board of Trustees; Dr. George A. Pruitt, president of Thomas Edison State University; Dr. Filomela Marshall, dean of the university’s W. Cary Edwards School of Nursing; and other university officials.
