ADI was retained by St. Thomas University for the design and construction of its newest student residence.
We were selected based on our experience integrating design into various construction phases, and because of our track record for delivering projects on time and on budget.
Chatham Hall is a three-storey building that accommodates approximately 150 students. It boasts:
The exterior of the student residence was constructed using a mix of stone and brick veneer, and the wood-framed gable roof was chosen to create a residential feeling. A mature maple tree was planted in the courtyard to enhance the “campus” look.
ADI constructed the building using an insulated concrete forming system, precast hollow-core concrete floor slabs, and interior masonry walls. This resulted in an energy-efficient, soundproof building that would provide residents more privacy. All rooms were designed with high speed Internet access and cable TV for in-room student entertainment.
The construction management project delivery model was chosen to facilitate an early start of the site preparation and foundation work while the remaining design was completed. Because construction was not delayed, students were able to begin moving into the residence as scheduled.
Chatham Hall had an eight month construction schedule, and the project was completed within budget.« back to projects
