JRM Construction Completes St. Francis College Buildout for Tishman Speyer in Brooklyn

JRM Construction Management has completed the new St. Francis College campus, spanning the lobby and floors 5 through 7 of the Wheeler Building, located at 181 Livingston St. in Brooklyn. The property was a JRM Core and Shell project completed for Tishman Speyer.  

JRM coordinated all vendor activities to allow the client to focus on its core competency and to ensure this extensive project was completed for the new school year. 

“The project is very exciting,” said JRM’s Joseph Romano, “and we have a great team which makes all the difference.” The new 277,000-square-foot school includes a full cook-in kitchen, kitchen servery and coffee bar.  

In addition, there is a cafeteria/multipurpose room, a 300-plus-seat auditorium, student library and an open bleacher staircase connecting the fifth and sixth floors. An interior enclosed convenience staircase will connect the sixth and seventh floors.
