- Project Budget
The existing Avery Residence Hall is an existing five story residence hall located on Ridge Road at the end of Stadium Drive on the UNC-CH campus. The project includes a 4860 Gross Square Foot (GSF) addition to the existing building along with renovations and repairs. The existing building is approximately 63,600 GSF.
The scope of site improvements at the front of the building includes creating an accessible path from the front entrance directly to the sidewalk at Ridge Road and a new drop off drive for Point-To-Point transit. At the back of the building and at the new addition, the site improvements will consist of a new accessible path from the street crossing to the west of Avery to the backside of the building up to the new addition, which will connect Avery to the north end of the campus. Other site and utility improvements include new domestic water service and backflow preventer, new storm drainage system, new landscaping and plantings, new sanitary connections, new chilled water connections, new service transformer, among others.
The ground floor of the building will consist of a renovated office suite for Carolina's housing use, along with new facilities for the building laundry, storage, mechanical, electrical rooms, etc. Floors 1-4 of the existing building will be renovated to have two new accessible suits that stack on all floors. The renovation scope will also include all existing windows being replaced, HVAC improvements, roof repairs, abatement, etc. The new addition will include a new elevator for vertical circulation, egress stair, and study rooms.
The project will be designed and constructed to University goals of environmental sustainability as set out in the UNC Climate Action Plan.
Advanced Planning concluded on February 6, 2023, and a Schematic Design submission to SCO was on June 28, 2023. Renovations to the existing building are expected to be completed by July 17, 2025 so that Carolina Housing can have beneficial occupancy for all residence rooms. The final stages of construction of the addition could extend into the fall semester of 2025 if need be.
