Campbell Hall (152,221 SF/ 496 units) is the fourth phased housing facility of Cardinal Village at Lamar University and houses prototypical apartment-style dwelling units. The building is rectangular with double loaded interior corridors that transition to exterior open-air corridors on the ends of the building. The structure is three-stories, wood framed, brick veneer skin, and steeply sloping shingled roofs. The units are single occupancy with baths. There is a club room facility and contracted concession areas at the ground floor.
Building Solutions was hired to serve as a third party project manager for this latest development within Cardinal Village (Campbell Hall). The assigned project manager temporarily took up residence in Beaumont to manage this project, as well as a major addition to the Cherry Engineering Building on campus. He met regularly with the design team and the general contractor and toured the project multiple times each day. The project schedule required completion in time for occupancy by the incoming fall class.
