Norfolk State University will welcome a new 740 bed Residential Facility constructed by a team which includes S.B. Ballard Construction Company, Commonwealth Architects, and Niles Bolton Associates. S.B. Ballard Construction Company will be the Design-Build Contractor.
The four-story Residential Facility will feature a North and South Hall with a central two-story amenity space, and will include 193,424 square feet and 740 beds for first year students. The amenity space, which connects the two residential wings, will house offices, conference room, resource production space, fitness room, movement/yoga studio, multipurpose room, group study space, community kitchen, theater, and an open gaming space.
The facility has been designed to complement NSU’s campus and architectural aesthetic. “We really wanted to create a facility that promotes community for NSU’s students. While maintaining the campus masterplan, we envisioned a residence hall fit for nurturing educational goals while providing space for establishing relationships that will last a lifetime,” said Anton V. Kashiri, Associate Vice President for Facilities Management at Norfolk State University.
Construction is expected to be complete by December 2019.
