University of Cincinnati Marian Spencer Hall

Cincinnati, OH

We Are Building

This 111,000 sf residence hall incorporates 8 levels of student housing, one level of administrative offices, and one level of kitchen/dining facilities. The project also includes exterior envelope, roofing, elevators, interior finishes, food service equipment, mechanical, plumbing, electric, fire alarm, teledata, CCTV, access control, fire protection systems and site improvements.

Features and Facts

This project received LEED Silver certification. In addition, this residence hall was constructed while the adjacent building remained occupied.

The use of Building Information Modeling enabled our team to virtually model the facility’s mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems prior to construction, ultimately reducing cost and increasing the reliability of the construction schedule.
