The BYU Heritage Halls Student Housing Phase I marks a new chapter in BYU student housing. With an academic-residential look and feel, the four new towers feature state-of-the-art amenities and apartment-style suites.
All four towers for the Brigham Young University Heritage Halls Buildings 1-4 are four stories tall with a basement. Heritage Halls Building 1 is 94,650 square feet, with 7 two-bedroom apartments and 36 three-bedroom apartments. Buildings 2, 3, and 4 are 72,450 square feet each (a total of 217,350 square feet). Each building houses 7 two-bedroom apartments and 28 three-bedroom apartments.
The new buildings, with their white stone bases, red walls, pitched roofs, and central green area, house more than 800 students. Each apartment has a kitchen, living and dining room, two bathrooms, and an extra sink in the hallway. The basements include a communal laundry area with extra storage space for students. The buildings include an activity room on each level and a grassy common area outside.
Big-D self-performed the complex structural concrete on the project. We performed the concrete work on the four buildings concurrently, which demanded careful planning and management of both manpower and resources. The self-performed work includes 12,500 cubic yards of concrete and 1,390,672 pounds of rebar.
