Quinnipiac University Law School – Hamden, Connecticut

The 130,000 square foot School of Law, located at the base of Sleeping Giant State Park, forms the western terminus of the University’s “Village Street”.

Located in an Aquifer Protection Zone of the South Central Connecticut Regional Water Authority, and directly adjacent to a groundwater pond, the site design required a careful and thoughtful approach to preserve sensitive environmental resources.

Nathan L. Jacobson & Associates, Inc. responsibilities included the design of all site improvements including pedestrian and vehicular access, parking and all supporting civil utilities (water, gas, sanitary and stormwater). Additional responsibilities included coordination with other site utilities, and obtaining all necessary local, regional and state land use and environmental permits.

Completed in 1994, under the direction of Centerbrook Architects, the Quinnipiac University School of Law design team received an AIA Design Award in 1997.

Nathan L. Jacobson & Associates, Inc. have served as Quinnipiac University’s Campus Civil Engineers since 1991, when the University began an ambitious campus wide expansion program.
