Fisher Associates spearheaded a transformative project centered on redesigning Binghamton University’s Central Quad, a vital hub spanning four acres within the campus. Our mission was clear: to enhance both the visual appeal and functional utility of this bustling area, catering to a diverse range of social activities. The redesign prioritized creating focal points, optimizing walkways for seamless navigation, and crafting intimate spaces for various gatherings.

Noteworthy additions included a striking granite infinity fountain, bio-retention areas for sustainable stormwater management, and thoughtfully selected amenities like lighting and sculpture.
By engineering heavy-duty pavement sections, we ensured the quad’s resilience for hosting
large-scale events like the annual Spring Fling. This project also provided a unique opportunity to honor the legacy of Harpur College of Arts and Sciences by christening the revamped space as the Harpur Quad.
