Long Island Business News has named three Cameron Engineering, now IMEG, projects as Best Projects in their respective categories for the 2024 Real Estate, Architecture & Engineering Awards.  

The awards celebrate brokers, dealmakers, developers, and industry professionals whose knowledge and expertise contribute to Long Island’s economic growth, creating jobs and building communities. The honorees were selected by the editorial staff of Long Island Business News.  

Hofstra University Science and Innovation Center was named Top Education Project — Nassau. The $76.8 million, 75,000-sf facility is the most state-of-the-art high-tech addition to the university in 20 years.   

Cameron Engineering, an IMEG company, provided structural, MEP, fire protection, and civil services for the building, which houses the university’s School of Nursing and adds new laboratories and research space for the DeMatteis School of Engineering and Applied Science. The adaptable building provides space for a simulation nursing training center, simulated patient exam rooms, multi-use classrooms, engineering, computer and other science laboratories, administrative and technology-driven workspaces, and dedicated areas for interdisciplinary research.   

Avalon Harbor Isle was named Top Residential Project – Nassau. The project required the redevelopment of a former brownfield site into the 11.6-acre residential community, necessitating innovative solutions to prepare the site for construction. A new, ultra-lightweight fill material made of recycled glass was used to raise the site to the proper elevation.  

Cameron Engineering, an IMEG company, provided civil engineering design, landscape architecture, and construction administration. Read the IMEG case study.   

A closed Hampton Inn renovated into New York Institute of Technology student housing won in the Top Adaptive Reuse — Nassau category. The 80-room dorm can serve as many as 160 students. Cameron Engineering, now IMEG, provided landscape architecture for the project.
