Stellar Wins $19.75M Flagler College Dormitory Project
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (March 8, 2016) — Stellar, a fully integrated firm focused on design, engineering, construction and mechanical services worldwide, has won a $19.75-million construction management contract to build a new dormitory and commons building for Flagler College.
The three-floor, 66,500-square-foot building will be located on Flagler College’s campus at 1 Malaga St. in downtown St. Augustine. It will include 148 rooms to accommodate 148 students. Stellar will also build a new 559-space, five-level precast concrete parking garage on the campus.
The greenfield construction project is set to begin in May and be completed in August 2017. Designed by PQH Architects, the building will have a Spanish Mission architectural style to compliment the Spanish colonial aesthetics of the historic college town.
“We’re honored to partner with Flagler College on such an iconic project,” said Richard Lovelace, Stellar Senior Vice President, Commercial Group. “While safety is always critical in any construction project, it is especially important when young people will be nearby while construction is ongoing. Our experience in numerous school, retail, worship and other projects with high traffic around the construction site will ensure students are safe while the project remains on time and within budget.”
Stellar, the construction manager, will work alongside PQH Architects, Inc. on the project.
