This residence hall was constructed in an existing built environment and is ongoing during the school year, thus maintaining project security and circulating pedestrian and vehicular traffic is important. The project site is located on campus and includes modification of an existing parking area, connection to adjacent utilities, and the construction of a new road. The building provides for 84 student beds arranged in a combination of two-bedroom suites, single bed rooms with common hallway bath, lounge areas, study rooms, a resident director’s apartment, a multi-purpose room, and various support spaces. This 30,000 SF, 4-story building will be constructed of load bearing and non-load bearing wood framed walls, as well as wood floor and roof trusses. The building exterior is a combination of brick veneer, fiber-cement wall panels, prefinished metal trim, stucco, aluminum storefront, aluminum window units, PVC membrane roofing and composite fiberglass shingle roofing. The interior finishes will include resilient and vinyl plank flooring, carpet, porcelain tile pavers, sealed concrete floors, painted gypsum board walls and ceilings, and painted concrete masonry units. Regarding engineering systems, the project includes individually controlled VRF mechanical units, surface mounted lighting with energy efficient lamps, and will have a NFPA 13R sprinkler system.
