Our second project with the school, Windover oversaw the preconstruction and construction for two adjacent 30,350 square-foot residence halls. Cushing turned to Windover to help identify a construction solution that could expedite their construction time-line while minimizing disruption to their active campus. After evaluating the feasibility of various approaches, we selected a panelized wall system, fabricated off-site, as the best option for the new dormitories.

The design of the dormitories is intentionally made to feel “home like” with accents such as pitched, shingled roofs, hardieplank siding, and inviting entry vestibules. Each building features 45 single-unit bedrooms, student common spaces, shared bathrooms, and four faculty units with basement level mechanical rooms, storage, and laundry facilities.
