Quarry Site Visit in Northern New Jersey / by Rosa Mannion

Staff members, Dan Chieco and Diana Fernandez recently visited a quarry in Northern New Jersey in search of stone material to compliment native stone found on the William Paterson Campus.  As part of the new academic project, we have been tasked with creating an outdoor landscape that promotes collaboration and aesthetic beauty.  Working with 14 feet of grade change a series of walls and terraces are incorporated into the design.
