Windover has been integral to the master planning of Endicott’s campus, and the Peter Frates Residence Hall project is no exception. Faced with the real need for increased freshman housing, Endicott turned to Windover to provide a buildable solution that would meet their tight timeline and fit within their overall campus planning. Windover’s team took action in response to Endicott’s identified needs: a dormitory that would have at least 150 beds and be completed for the entering Fall 2016 class. They evaluated various sites on the campus and worked closely with the architecture team to develop a design satisfying the school’s budgetary and programmatic requirements. The successful outcome of the team’s innovative planning is an increase in the final bed count from 150 to 225 beds without sacrificing quality or cost.
A Design/Build, Modular Solution
The new Peter Frates Residence Hall, named in honor of Beverly resident and ALS hero, is home to 225 students as they embark on their college career. Featuring 76 units and one residence director unit, the dormitory features spacious triple rooms with community baths. With an accelerated construction timeline of eight months, Windover directed the project under a collaborative design/build approach that allowed the client, design team, and design/build subcontractors to bring their expertise to the table early on. This approach, coupled with the use of modular construction, elevated the quality of the final product while finishing on a tight timeline.
