The University engaged Rycon early-on to provide preconstruction and construction management services to construct this new, out-of-ground, six-story residence hall and campus hub. Concrete foundations with conventional steel and deck construction makeup the core while the exterior includes masonry, ﬁber cement panels, and standing seam zinc metal panels. The 98,000 sq. ft. facility includes 81 residence suites, community kitchens, technology-enhanced learning commons, and an exterior courtyard. The ground ﬂoor will be a 5,000 sq. ft. campus hub. The project included full MEP BIM coordination between MEP subcontractors (LOD 400), CMU facilities, and the A/E Design Team. The structure was designed to achieve LEED Gold Certification.
