At the turn of the millennium, UNE was expanding rapidly and was facing an acute housing crisis - a segment of that growing student population was being housed at nearby hotels.

Confronted with deadlines, property constraints, environmental shoreline setbacks, and multiple regulatory commissions, JSA designed and completed four new residence halls, adding 663 new beds.

In addition, JSA designed the George and Barbara Bush Center (featuring the Bush Legacy Library, a student cafe, and administrative offices), and the Peter and Cecile Morgane Hall, the first all-academic facility at UNE in over a decade.

Sokokis Hall, from its inception in April of 2009 to ground breaking in October 2009 - with student move-in mid-August 2010 - this project broke all speed records. Energy efficient design includes radiant floor heating in all suites, dual flush toilets, occupancy sensors on lights, low VOC finishes, and a green roof.
