Balfour Beatty to develop US student housing

21 Sep 12 Balfour Beatty Campus Solutions has entered into a development agreement with Lake Forest College in the USA for a new 233-bed student housing facility.

The US$15m (£9.25m) project on the college’s South Campus in Lake Forest, Illinois, also includes demolition of the existing Moore Hall student housing facility.

Balfour Beatty Campus Solutions has partnered with Solomon Cordwell Buenz (Chicago) as the architect on the project, and Walsh Construction (Chicago) as the construction contractor performing demolition and construction work for the new building.  The new student housing facility is scheduled to be delivered for occupancy in August 2013, prior to the start of the 2013/2014 academic year.

"The new residential facility is crucial to the College's ability to attract and retain the best students to Lake Forest," said Lake Forest College vice president of business affairs, Leslie Chapman. "And its design fits in well with the rest of South Campus and the surrounding community. It will be a terrific addition to campus."
