Grant Integrative Facilities Management (Grant) received an extension to continue providing comprehensive facility management, maintenance, and repair services at the first-of-its-kind Joint Health Science Center.
Located at the corner of Martin Luther King Boulevard and South Broadway in downtown Camden, the Joint Health Science Center is a state-of-the-art collaborative, research-driven educational facility serving Rowan University, Rutgers University-Camden, and Camden County College.
The four-story, 100,000-square foot building features cutting-edge research laboratory space for Rowan University and Rutgers University-Camden; simulation rooms for medical students at Cooper Medical School of Rowan University; instructional space and simulation labs for Camden County College; office space for the Board of Governors; a rooftop terrace; and general-use multipurpose spaces.
Grant, owned by Haddonfield resident James P. Grant and longtime-Sewell resident Jim N. Grant, is responsible for the efficient and effective operation, management, and maintenance of the facility, as well as providing emergency support 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.
“As an owner, it’s always rewarding to receive repeat business,” said Jim N. Grant, founder of Grant. “When a client extends a contract, adds tasks, or offers another opportunity to serve them, it’s proof that you’re meeting their needs by delivering on-time and technically sound solutions. It’s also a testament to our on-site facility manager, as well as our in-house subject matter experts, who respond when needed.”
The Joint Health Sciences Center is a critical piece of Camden’s resurgence as a destination for medical research and education with this partnership between three academic institutions. The building is expected to generate more than $70 million in economic impact in Camden.
