After successfully completing three other student housing projects on campus, including Spartan Village Phase I, Barton Malow was chosen as the construction manager for the next phase of the much-needed residential housing expansion. As builder, Barton Malow also provided self-perform concrete services for this student housing project, including cement board buildings.
This project consisted of two new, apartment-style residence halls with meeting and retail space, connected by a pedestrian bridge. Designed for sophomores, juniors, seniors, and graduate students, the dorms give students their own bedrooms with shared bath and living spaces. This town center concept also includes two pedestrian plazas, opening the space to UNCG students and the adjacent Glenwood neighborhood.
The project was built adjacent to a residential neighborhood, Barton Malow-built Spartan Village Phase I residence halls, and the student recreation center. The project team worked with a Glenwood neighborhood representative to ensure residents were aware of activities that potentially affected the community. The adjacent residence halls required the team to work with the University’s transportation group to create a new bus route to safely transport students to the buildings during the construction of Spartan Village Phase II. We worked closely with the UNCG Police and the office of Housing and Residence Life to ensure pedestrian safety to and from all adjacent facilities.
Barton Malow also strategically scheduled shutdowns to coordinate with existing campus holidays and breaks to minimize the impact on students and staff at the University. In order to manage noise restrictions, the team also limited work hours to exclude early mornings and late nights to best accommodate the surrounding communities.
