Apartments: new construction

The new four-story apartment building, available for senior student housing in the fall of 2005, was designed for groups of four to six people to live in each apartment.  Each unit offers a private bedroom with kitchen/dining and living room areas. Amenities include campus computer connection, campus cable, hardwood floors and cabinetry, appliances and furnishings for living room and bedrooms. Fourth floor apartments utilize attic space with an open loft suitable for additional lounge space. 

Consideration for eco-friendly aspects in the project is evident in the low-emission construction materials (e.g. paints), selection of metal roofing material, design decisions to maximize natural lighting with low-energy windows, selection of carpet tiles that decrease installation waste and replacement costs. Each apartment is fully heated and air-conditioned using efficient water source heat pumps. The heat pumps are coupled to a central 95 percent efficient boiler for heating and high efficient heat exchanger for cooling, using well water. The entire system is supervised and controlled by a central computerized building management system.
