The university’s objective was to develop a comfortable, state-of-the-art residence for students and guests to foster social, leisure, and intellectual activities. Ensuring that the residence was completed as quickly as possible was an important goal for this project. Eastern Construction’s experience working under stringent site restrictions and populated areas enabled the successful coordination of all construction activities in a timely fashion without affecting the 13-month schedule. The residence houses 348 students on five storeys for a total of 116,520 sq. ft. with load bearing block, precast slabs, and exterior clad with brick and zinc siding.
