We are getting closer every day to our goal of putting “heads on beds” at the San Jose State University Campus Village Phase 2 next summer.
Our team has nearly completed work on the concrete structure and started interior rough-ins and framing. The $102 million student housing construction project is a high-rise student housing facility that got under way in August 2014.
When work began, the construction wall was only 10 feet from the university’s public pool, which remained open. The team was able to take some space from the pool deck, leaving a still-tight 30 feet between the project and pool. We have weekly coordination meetings with Housing and Aquatics staff to coordinate and talk about upcoming activities. The pool and other surrounding structures eventually will be demolished and replaced by a new recreation center.
The residence hall is located adjacent to the existing Campus Village Phase 1 complex. Helping the university meet the student need for on-campus housing, the project will include 850 beds, common study rooms, a lounge, multi-purpose room, recreation room and other support spaces. San Jose State’s enrollment last fall was 32,713.
Teaming with architects Solomon Cordwell Buenz, our San Jose office is leading the fast-track, design-build project. This is our second facility for San Jose State; we finished renovations on the university’s historic Spartan Complex in July.
