West Lafayette, IN
The electrical portion of this twelve-story, 335,000 square-foot student housing development included 2 levels of underground parking and 242 condos and apartment homes. This was a 100% design-build project. The work included underground primary utility duct banks and electrical service entrances, vertical busway distribution, emergency power infrastructure including generators and uninterruptable power supplies (UPS).
One of the most important aspects of student housing projects on major college campuses is schedule; nearly every student housing schedule is accompanied with extremely stringent deadlines. This project was no exception to that rule. This made for significant schedule changes that could have led to detrimental trade clashes if the electrical team did not step up as construction leaders.
Upon competition, Hub Plus is only one of two high-rises located in the downtown area, serving as the gateway into campus and has sparked the high-rise revolution in West Lafayette.
