VIKA provided surveying and civil engineering services for the 26th Street North Campus project. This campus improvement project included:
- Caruthers Hall, a 3 ½-story, 52,000 SF academic facility building that includes labs and teachers’ offices for the sciences and health sciences
- Rose Benté Lee Ostapenko Hall, a six-story, 77,000 SF residence hall with 239 dorm beds
- Malek Plaza, a community plaza that curves between the buildings and provides an outdoor gathering space
- Underground parking with 145,000 SF.
In designing this project, Marymount University created an environmentally friendly urban village and participated in an extensive community process, working with a neighborhood advisory group throughout the project’s construction. The project’s sustainability goal was LEED Silver certification. Caruthers Hall is LEED-NC Silver certified.
Marymount University’s 26th Street North campus received the 2010 Community Appearance Award by the Northern Virginia Regional Commission.
Other VIKA Marymount University projects include the Campus Master Plan, that identified programmatic opportunities and deficiencies that could be initiated or resolved through renovation of existing spaces, and the renovation of Rowley Hall, an academic building and student residence hall.
