Twin Peaks inc provided Special Inspections and Material Testing Services for Cornell University on multiple elements of the construction of the Cornell Tech Campus on Roosevelt Island. An extensive set of inspections have been performed on the construction of the Bloomberg Center, a 150,000-square foot flexible space structure, the Central Utilities Plant, a 12,000-square foot electrical substation, and on sitework conducted throughout the 2.5-acre campus. Work was completed on time and the campus opened to students on schedule on September 1, 2017. The Bloomberg Center was designed by the Pritzker Prize winning architect Thom Mayne of Morphosis. It will attempt to achieve Net Zero energy use by providing its own sustainable power and utilizes a flexible space floor plan in many areas that can be converted to open or closed plans depending on the occasion.
