The University Suites project is a new 4- to 5-story residence hall building on the University of Massachusetts Lowell East Campus. The 147,000 SF building houses 472 beds in a suite style apartment setting.
The building structural system is a conventional structural steel frame supported by a deep foundation (precast concrete pile) system. The building is fully air conditioned, and it contains current state-of-the-art telecommunications services in order to meet the needs of the 21st century student. The building exterior is a combination of brick and metal panels that compliments the surrounding mill buildings in this Historic District of the City of Lowell. The building was designed to meet LEED Silver.
