The new Student Housing Village is composed of four energy-efficient buildings featuring semi-suites, traditional double-accommodation rooms, spa-like bath facilities, meeting rooms, classrooms, a student-success center, and parking. Student rooms and collaboration spaces overlook an outdoor market-style area complete with bistro tables, gathering spots, and retail shops.
The student housing P3 venture is headed by Balfour Beatty Campus Solutions as the developer and contractor. Clark Nexsen is the architect. McKim & Creed is furnishing site/civil engineering, landscape architecture, hardscape design, and construction administration. Utilizing the design-build project delivery method has cut the typical design-through-construction schedule in half. Construction for the $116-million facility is scheduled for 2021.
