University of Washington West Campus Student Housing – Seattle, WA
To meet burgeoning demand and shrinking budgets, a growing number of colleges and universities are choosing to use wood for their student housing facilities. Wood-frame construction offers cost savings as well as other benefits, including design flexibility, structural integrity and environmental advantages. In 2012, the University of Washington (UW) completed a $109 million, five-building construction project, adding nearly 1,700 student housing beds.
