Design Build

Bassett & Pioneer Residence Halls: Transylvania University constructed 2 new 4-story, 144-bed residence halls as part of their dormitory replacement project. The project is arranged in a fast-track, design-build methodology. The structures consist of hollow core precast concrete floor and innovative flush steel beams for a total structure depth of 11”. Vertical support is by insulated concrete form (ICF) walls and an interior steel frame along one side of the corridor. The structure is founded on reinforced concrete strip foundations over lean concrete down to bedrock (due to existing fills and shallow bedrock). The exterior walls feature brick and limestone veneer with a large number of window openings. Vertical relief of the brick veneer with careful depiction of brick expansion control (horizontal and vertical) is integrated into the structural drawings. Each level l features open, multi-purpose rooms to enhance student life. Mechanical, laundry and kitchen areas are also included.
