Comparative Building Costs: Higher Education Housing

Renovated Graduate Apartments

This $25 million renovation of a 203,500-square-foot complex in Florida transformed a former resort into modern housing for graduate students. The project’s fast-tracked, nine-month schedule was required to accommodate students for fall term. The resort was demolished to its original tunnel form shells and rebuilt to code with new/upgraded electrical, plumbing, fire alarm, and fire suppression systems. Old brickwork was replaced with a new facade consisting of an energy-efficient EIFS system with sound-dampening insulating panels painted in an earth tone palette.

Student Apartments

The sloped site of this new private student apartment community in western Maryland was a challenge for the design and construction team. Once the location of a coal mine, the building’s site needed to accommodate a foundation supporting 107 suites with 404 bedroom units in a four-story structure. A U-shaped plan encloses a courtyard area with a naturally tiered amphitheater for concerts and plays. Each suite is equipped with a living room with bay windows, a dining area, kitchen facilities, a dishwasher, disposal, refrigerator, clothes washer and dryer.
