A new student housing construction project underway at California State University Channel Islands (CI) in Camarillo will accommodate 600 freshmen when it is complete in July 2016. The $57 million design-build project, dubbed Santa Rosa Village, includes construction of two new residential buildings. Once completed, the 120,000-square-foot housing community will include a newly remodeled 20,000-square-foot dining facility and adjacent infrastructure upgrades. It is Sundt’s second project on the CI campus.

“Our innovative approach to our first project with the university’s Sierra Hall facility is a major reason we remained competitive in the selection process,” said Robert Stokes, Sundt regional director. “We demonstrated that Sundt had the vision and expertise to turn a major remodel into a complete tear-down and rebuild without going over budget.”
