From new outdoor benches and lighting to completely refurbished lobbies, several projects begun in 2019 are making Einstein a better place to work and live.
“Upgrading and modernizing our grounds and facilities and investing in enhancements to our campus community are a priority,” says Gregg Tarquinio, Einstein’s associate dean for administration and finance.
The renovations have included adding new furniture and lighting to student housing, the Belfer Educational Center, and the D. Samuel Gottesman Library study area.
Necessary structural improvements have involved upgrading elevators and replacing air conditioners in several buildings. Audiovisual equipment has been replaced in auditoriums, lecture halls, and conference rooms; wireless and wired networking technology is currently being overhauled campus-wide; and additional automated external defibrillator units have been placed in all buildings.
In addition to those projects, the Clinical Research Center has moved from the Jack D. Weiler Hospital and the Leo Forchheimer Medical Science Building to space within the Van Etten Building, and the Magnetic Resonance Research Center has received a new 3T magnet and had its infrastructure upgraded.
