project description

Preconstruction and construction management services for a new four-story student housing and mixed-use project located on an occupied campus.

The upper three floors encompass:
  • 165 beds in 51 units ranging in size from single beds up to four-bedroom apartment style units
  • Centralized kitchen and laundry
  • Group study rooms
The first floor included retail space for the following:
  • College bookstore
