University of North Alabama Student Housing
Size: 193,000 sf
Status: Completed 2015
This is a new construction project of approximately 193,000 sf providing 700+ beds in two buildings on adjacent sites along the north edge of the University of North Alabama campus. The design is composed of double occupant and super single units, and each building incorporates Live-Work-Play commons areas, a storm shelter, and a recreational entry plaza. The siting of the project provides an anchor for the north end of the campus, with the style and materials referencing the historic core of the campus to the south. Longer range master planning by GMC includes future greenway and pedestrian trails as well as additional residence halls that reinforce this connection and strengthen the quality of the whole campus. This project is being delivered using a design-build process with a development company. The design schedule was accelerated to facility completion of the project for use in the fall of the coming year. GMC provided a wide range of services including Architecture, Interior Design, Civil Engineering, Land Surveying, and Landscape Architecture.
