This year’s final presentation took place at the Real Estate Board of New York’s offices in Midtown.  Students on the Manhattanville team presented a theoretical 15-story dormitory for Columbia’s Manhattanville Campus, if it were to be located in the space where the two new Columbia Business School buildings are being built.

The theoretical building was comprised of two public floors that include a laundry room, café, library, pool, and exercise room, and 13 residential floors.  The project taught students how to calculate the structural loads for each floor and roof, and what mechanical and electrical services were required throughout the building.

The students were mentored by professionals at Columbia’s Manhattanville Development Group, Turner Construction, Jaros Baum & Bolles, and Grimshaw Architects.  This is the tenth year Columbia’s Manhattanville Development Team has participated in the program.
