Middlesex County College

Tom Fantacone's successful and enduring partnership with Middlesex County College (MCC) in Edison, NJ began in 1987 with the commission to design the Technical Services Center. Over 30+ years, the collaboration saw the design and construction of eight building projects and a Facilities Master Plan:

  • Technical Services Center (now Billy Johnson Hall) - a 45,000 SF, two-story building housing engineering disciplines and computer-related programs.
  • Instructional Resource Center - a 40,000 SF, two-story building which connects to the Library and Johnson Learning Center, creating a study and learning complex. The Center houses an expansion of the library to house much-needed study and collaborative space, computer labs, faculty offices, and a distance learning classroom.
  • Gateway Building - a 5,000 SF building situated at the College's main entry gate serves to welcome visitors to the campus. The Gateway Building houses a welcome center, and police and security offices for the campus.
  • Blue Colt Bookstore?- a 12,000 SF facility housing the college bookstore.
  • Academy for Science, Mathematics and Engineering Technologies - a 40,000 SF, two-story building comprised of engineering and science labs for academically-gifted high school students in the County, who take college level classes and use the college cafeteria and physical education facilities.
  • College Hall Renovation - complete renovation of the existing student life center created a more vibrant facility with comprehensive building system upgrades.
  • Performing Arts Renovation and Addition - addition of a studio theater and expanded entry to the existing Performing Arts venue on campus.
  • South Hall Science Building - a 40,000 SF, two-story science building houses 14 chemistry, biology and general science labs, faculty offices, and support functions.
  • Facilities Master Plan 2012 - the master plan outlines facilities improvements, additions and new structures to serve as a blueprint for campus growth over the next 10 years.

Tom's work with MCC built upon the unique campus context with a cohesive aesthetic vocabulary. These projects represented nearly $60 million in construction value over the 30-year period of the collaboration.

These projects were completed by Tom Fantacone prior to joining Posen Architects.
