Akerley Campus | August 2023

A construction site is shown of a new student housing facility being built.

As Akerley Campus approaches the one-year mark to the opening date of their new student housing, progress inside the building has made strides throughout August.

Pictured is an apartment room under construction with fresh drywall.
Apartments on the third floor are now nearing completion.

The latest progress:

  • Domestic water supply connection to Main Street is now complete. Minor back driveway paving remains
  • Sanitary connection on John Cross Drive approved for the coming weeks
  • The first floor now has stud walls installed and drywall installation has started
  • Drywall is nearly complete on the second floor and painting has begun
  • Painting, flooring, cupboards and other finishes are well underway on the third floor
  • All stairwells are currently being drywalled
  • Roofing is substantially complete
  • Bioswales are defined on the exterior to help manage roof water
  • Pads are prepped for electrical transformer and backup generator

We thank you for your patience and understanding as we complete these important phases of this project.
