Balfour Beatty’s Campus Solutions and US Buildings operations have completed phase two of University of North Carolina Wilmington’s (UNCW) Student Village, which is a public-private partnership.
The project involved building 776 additional student beds and a student centre on the 409,722-square-foot development. Phase one, finished last autumn, delivered 1,038 beds, a coffee shop and convenience store.
Clark Nexsen Architecture and Engineering was design partner and Collegiate Housing Foundation, a national non-profit, is the project’s residential facility owner through an issuance of project-based, tax-exempt debt financing.
Tony Stoneking, senior vice president of Balfour Beatty’s operations in North Carolina, said: “We couldn’t be more proud of what our team accomplished over the last three years, especially their resiliency in overcoming impacts from the pandemic and hurricanes. The construction of the Student Village is the fourth project our project team has successfully delivered since 2020 and we look forward to more opportunities to meet the growing needs of UNC Wilmington students and faculty.”
