More than halfway through the construction process, Shiel Sexton is on schedule to turn over the new Fairview House student residences at Butler University this fall for student occupancy.
Constructed for Butler University in partnership with American Campus Communities, the new 633-bed residence hall features pod-style units with state-of-the-art amenities including a business center with study booths and rooms, multiple lounge spaces, fitness center, media center with four TVs, game area, and laundry facilities on three floors. The 210,000 SF facility also features a multi-purpose center with lounge and event space that can accommodate a seating capacity of 400-seats in a theatre-style setting and 240-seats in a dining style capacity.
Shiel Sexton General Superintendent, Greg Carr, reports that the exterior masonry is 70% complete with over 90% of the windows installed. The south half of the building is in final finish stages with cabinets and flooring complete, and the north half of the building is in the midst of the drywall install. The next major milestone will be site work which will begin in several weeks. Greg is well-versed at keeping construction schedules on track at Butler, as this is his fourth major construction project on campus.
Located along Sunset Avenue just south of Butler Way, this beautiful structure will provide a new gateway to the Butler campus. The residence hall is part of the university’s larger effort to add more on-campus housing, and Shiel Sexton is proud to a part of this exciting development.
