HUMBOLT, Calif. (July 29, 2022) – As a leading student housing builder in California, Sundt Construction was recently selected by California State Polytechnic University, Humboldt, to build its new Craftsman Student Housing project, located along St. Louis Road just north of the campus.

Cal Poly Humboldt is preparing to conduct an environmental impact report and anticipates breaking ground in January 2023. The $150 million, 1,050-bed housing complex will provide apartment-style student residence units.

“We are excited to partner with Sundt on this historic and unique housing project for Cal Poly Humboldt,” says Sherie Cornish Gordon, Vice President of Administration & Finance. “Our work with Sundt on this project has enabled Humboldt to evolve our vision and accelerate our ability to increase housing and other important amenities for our students. This will be the first hallmark project of our polytechnic transformation.”

This will be Sundt’s seventh California State University project delivered under a design-build contract. Sundt is teamed with SCB Architects, DCI Engineers, Guttman & Blaevoet and BKF on the project.

“This is an exciting time for the university,” said Sean Falvey, Sundt’s project executive. “We are thrilled to be a part of the beginning of their transformation.”

Sundt has over 70 years of diverse project work throughout California. A higher education building leader in California, Sundt has redefined student living across the various campuses in the state. Sundt recently completed the Hornet Commons complex near the Sacramento State campus and is nearing completion on the $108 million student housing complex for California State University Fullerton.
