Since 1972, JE Dunn has partnered with Metropolitan Community College to complete over 20 projects on its six campuses ranging in scope from new construction to remodel and expansion.
Recently, projects involved the construction of FEMA shelters on each of its campuses. Square footage ranged from 3,000 to 47,000 SF. Completed over the course of a year, each building was constructed with 12-inch-thick concrete walls and met FEMA approved guidelines.
These buildings were designed and constructed to LEED standards. The buildings also have a 20% increase in energy performance.
