This student apartment community is adjacent to the campus of UNC Wilmington. The community includes two four-story buildings and a clubhouse with an amenity area. The project scope included asbestos abatement and demolition of 11 existing structures on site. The existing concrete foundations, slabs and sidewalks were all crushed and reused under the parking areas in lieu of purchasing new stone.

The team started construction on the project during one of the wettest seasons on record, in order to keep the schedule on track, the team accelerated the framing schedule. Through detailed scheduling and coordination, the team was able to ensure that trades were able to safely work around each other and maintain the project schedule.
