Two, six-story dormitories
Iona College selected Holt Construction to serve as Construction Manager and General Contractor for the construction of two six-story dorms, located on a main thoroughfare in New Rochelle, NY. The Catholic College wanted to ensure that the new halls would fit in to their mission to foster a safe, inclusive, respectful, and engaging community. Iona College offers the best of both worlds – a beautiful suburban campus setting in New Rochelle only 20 miles away from the heart of New York City.
Collaboration with the Architect and Engineer was paramount due to the geo-technical issues presented for this project. The primary challenge was the extensive rock that was encountered during the preparation of both building foundations.
