Location: Columbus | Owner: Central Community College | Size: 11,630 sf
Solution: The project involved master planning Columbus student housing for the next 20 years, and then implementing Phase 1. The master plan allowed the college to locate the building and plan services so that future construction would not require removal of current construction and that utilities would be sized appropriately for future needs. The design solution consisted of 18 student rooms, housing up to three students, and support spaces. Precast concrete was used for speed of construction and superior insulating value while maintaining a cost comparable to wood frame construction. The building will serve as a prototype for future housing development on the campus.
