Resident Appartment building repairs

Construction Dates

Completed July 2004


The Residence Apartment Building was closed for two years due to faulty construction resulting in water intrusion and mold. The University successfully litigated a settlement with the contractor to remediate and repair the building. Some structural work was included.

Upon its reopening in the Fall 2004, 600 beds in renovated 1- and 2-bedroom apartments were again made available to transfer or sophomore students under the age of 20.

The apartment building was renamed the Towers at Centennial Square. The Guest Center/International Community was renamed the Science and Technology Community, to house full-time freshmen under the age of 20. 


Scope of work

Major demolition work was completed in early September 2003. Exterior recladding began in late August 2003. This included a new exterior finish and roof. The contractor has completed stucco application and in April began applying elastomeric coating. Window installation was completed in February 2004.

Work in February and March 2004 also included carpet installation, fire alarm system replacement, and installation of new kitchen units and bathroom fixtures.

Work in May and June 2004 included landscaping, paving, main entrance seismic upgrade and completion of building finishes. Installation of computer/telephone/television cable was completed by August 2004.

This project completely replaced the roof, windows and exterior walls, and upgraded the structure for current code compliance.  The fire alarm system, lavatories, vanities, bathtubs, kitchen units and floor coverings were replaced as part of the project.
