KyuJung Whang comes to us from Cornell University where he was vice president of infrastructure, properties and planning. “The Princeton University campus is known to be one of the most beautiful and iconic college campuses in the world,” KyuJung said.
The Office of Design and Construction (ODC) provides leadership and expertise to manage capital projects from design through to construction and delivery phases for both new construction and renovations. We are the liaison between the University department sponsoring the project and the rest of the project team, including designers, architects, engineers and builders. We also provide the beautiful interior design and furniture planning you see in our buildings. In addition to leading a project team and monitoring a project’s progress, many in our group contribute specialized sustainability knowledge and have been recognized as LEED accredited professionals (LEED AP).
