Delaware State University – Tubman Laws Hall

New Construction

Project Type

Higher Education

Project Description

New construction of a five-story residence hall in the middle of an occupied college campus. Preliminary work involved the relocation of all underground utilities in the campus quad where the new building was to be built.

The new residence hall was scheduled to be open for the Fall 2019 semester, so construction needed to take place while classes were session. This required extensive collaboration with the University to arrange for the logistics, schedule and safety of all students, staff, faculty and visitors.

The 620 bed dormitory also included:

  • Dining Facility
  • Study Rooms
  • Community Spaces
  • Office Space
