Barto Hall is a four-story campus housing project consisting of 117,000 square ft. It has 188 rooms, 360 beds, 2 RHC apartments and a separate residence-life building. There are also communal bathrooms, study rooms, and lounges on each floor to promote social interaction. A large multi-purpose suite is accessible to all campus residents, while a prominent front lawn provides opportunities for outdoor recreation. Pre-fabricated wood wall assemblies, which were shipped to the site, facilitated a quick construction schedule and enhanced quality control. This Green Building Project meets requirements for LEED Platinum for Homes Mid-Rise.
