Pauli Murray and Benjamin Franklin Colleges
Yale University—New Residential Colleges
New Haven, CT
Architect: Robert A.M. Stern Architects
Client: Turner Construction
Project Type: Stone Engineering
With its rich history and impeccable standing amongst the best institutions in the world, Yale University’s New Residential Colleges are examples of a new build made to look traditional and in keeping with the historical relevance of its surroundings. The masonry structures are identified by two distinct colleges: the North and the South. The architectural character matches many existing buildings on the Yale Campus, with exquisite attention to detail as evidenced by the beautiful passageway groin vaults, signature towers, and meticulous stone tracery. PICCO Engineering helped contribute to this project by way of shop drawings, fabrication tickets, and connections. The natural and cast stone components evident in this remarkable project exemplify the finest use of stone.
