Wayne State University has selected the private developer Corvias to create a public private partnership (P3) model that allows the university to raise capital, reinvest in existing housing, and create new housing while maintaining university ownership and revenue. This presentation will review the first project in the 40-year partnership, the design and construction of a new 841-bed student housing facility. The presentation will touch on the design of the new student apartment complex, its interaction with the surrounding context, and the unit design. The presentation will also include the construction challenges such as the unique soils conditions and the aggressive schedule.
