These two new residence halls provide more on-campus housing choices at this 850 student, co-ed independent school. These new dormitories house 8 faculty apartments located on the ends of each complex and consist of 3-4 bedrooms and two stories. There are 60 bedrooms in either sign or double configurations for the students.

Innovative design measures incorporated into this project include a 40-ton closed loop geothermal cooling system that will provide a stable temperature range of chilled water, reducing the need for standard air conditioning. Further green building technology in the project includes exhaust and fresh air heat recovery units.
