The University of North Carolina Charlotte continues to expand to accommodate over 30,000 students. To meet the need for more student housing, UNCC has been converting more of its 1,000 acres of land into livable space. Radco Roofing was contracted for work on both the Residence Halls Phase X and XI.
The projects were very complex new construction roof projects consisting of decking insulation, shingles, TPO, standing seam metal, shop fabricated and pre-fabricated downspouts and gutters, all containing a myriad of differing roof angles, details, tie ins and transitions. Specialty components also completed for the UNCC projects were firewall flashings, soffits, custom wall panels and awnings. The work site was limited and the materials had to be stored offsite.
Because both projects were completed on campus, safety was of the utmost importance. The crew dealt with a tight work-zone so they complied with all safety regulations by attending weekly progress meetings.
Phase X (named Belk Hall) is designed to primarily house upper-class students. Belk Hall offers a blend of apartments and suites. Its open design encourages interaction while creating a community atmosphere.
Belk Hall is located in a very natural and wooded area. The University wanted to keep that feeling with a more natural stone aesthetic, and keep as many trees in the area as possible.
Phase XI (named Hunt Hall) is the first suite option in the new South Village. Hunt Hall features conveniently placed study rooms, lounges, an atrium, a welcoming courtyard and many other amenities. Hunt Hall is comprised of 2 and 4 bedroom suites.
We welcomed the opportunity to work with the University, whose architectural integrity is a valuable contribution to the beautiful city of Charlotte.
