McKissack, in partnership with another construction management firm, provided construction management services for the construction of the first phase of Columbia’s expansion in the Manhattanville section of West Harlem. The site of the new Manhattanville campus is a 17-acre area northwest of the University’s historic Morningside Heights Campus. Phase 1 projects included the Jerome L. Greene Science Center (Mind Brain Behavior Building), and the Lenfest Center for the Arts, a new multi-arts venue; both were designed by Renzo Piano.
Also included was the Central Energy Plant, the first below grade facility constructed on the new campus that will provide essential services such as the power, heat and cooling necessary for the operation of the new campus buildings. The total for these projects exceeded $500 million. The buildings achieved LEED Gold certification. In addition to providing construction management services, McKissack also provided M/W/LBE consulting services to attract, assist and facilitate minority, women and local business enterprises as well as community residents seeking construction-related employment to participate in all phases of the Manhattanville project.
