AGC Build Washington Award
The Maple and Terry Halls student housing project consisted of two new residential buildings, with lower floors serving as the new home for the University’s Housing and Food Services (HFS) offices. The award-winning project houses over 1,100 students and holds 373,329 SF of space, with apartment-style units and plenty of amenities for student life.
Phasing and scheduling the work took exact precision, as HFS needed to move into the two lower floors of Terry Hall months before students would be occupying the new buildings. The early occupancy plan took extraordinary teamwork and went off smoothly, allowing occupied offices to be tucked into a building that was still under construction on the floors above and below in the garage. The project earned a perfect contractor evaluation score from the University, making it a model for team coordination and efficiency.
The UW tunnel for utility services, which bisected our site just beneath our footing grade, remained active throughout construction. The project was situated adjacent to a newly opened housing facility which was a hub of activity that attracted students from all over campus. During our project, the Burke Gilman trail was rerouted to our southern boundary. It carried an average of 3,000 commuters a day crossing the city alongside our delivery access, and we maintained the site without a single pedestrian or cyclist incident related to our work.
