Project Notes – Florida Atlantic University 

 

Oldcastle SurePod factory built bathrooms helped to accelerate construction of two student housing apartment style buildings at Florida Atlantic University. The buildings totaled 489,000 square feet and providing 1,216 beds for upper-division and graduate students at the Boca Raton University. Construction began in March 2010, and the first students moving in late July 2011.

This project was schedule driven with a lofty goal of getting students in prior to 2011-2012 school year. Oldcastle SurePods bathroom pods helped Balfour Beatty to meet their aggressive schedule and get the students back to school.

Oldcastle SurePods pre-fabricated bathrooms were part of an overall innovative approach to the construction of the dormitories. Tunnel-formed concrete super-structure and site-cast facade panels were also employed as part of the construction.
