Meredith College Oaks Dormitory
CALYX provided civil, environmental, and structural services for the construction of this three-story, apartment-style building organized as two residential neighborhoods that contain 48 4-bedroom/2-bath units and 30 2-bedroom/2-bath units, each including washers and dryers. The two neighborhoods are linked by the Village Commons which serves as the entryway for the community. Common spaces indoors include a reception lobby; several meeting spaces; a coffee bar; an outdoor patio area; and a mailroom. The building accommodates up to 252 upper-class students. CALYX provided structural engineering as well as site improvements, including parking, a stormwater pond, study garden, and utility design.
In keeping with Meredith’s commitment to sustainability, the apartments were built towards and received USGBC LEED Silver Certification.
