Living and Learning: UD Student Housing raises the bar

The University of Dayton has created a model for modern residential living on college campuses with its Caldwell Street student housing project. It’s a redeveloped, 6-acre campus community of the future with five townhouse residences, a mechanical building for the project’s utilities, and a courtyard connecting all of them. UD’s goal was to create a student community that “fit in” with the surrounding neighborhoods. And they have done exactly that with the townhouse façades that feature arches, overhangs, gables and dormers that are similar to the surrounding neighborhoods. See the video

Building the campus community—that was designed by the university—was an enormous task for the Miller-Valentine Construction team headed by Tony Williams, senior project manager for the project. To be sure that the residences were ready for the opening of school, the team—often more than 250 workers—put in many seven-day weeks because of the “accelerated schedule” required for the August 2012 date. With Miller-Valentine’s FastTrack construction, the project was completed on time and ready for student move-in day.

It was worth the effort, according to UD officials. The new Caldwell Street apartments will accommodate 425 upperclassmen and international students and sets the pace for future residential projects at the school.

Camp Joy is more than a camp.
It’s a unique EXPERIENCE! And Miller-Valentine Construction helped make
it happen!

Miller-Valentine Construction just completed renovating the dining hall at Camp Joy in Clarksville, Ohio. The beautiful raised, vaulted grand entrance to the facility opens into an inviting dining room.The massive fireplace also makes the dining hall a welcoming “gathering place” for Camp Joy’s hundreds of young people and their families as they prepare for the many hands-on outdoor experiences and fun-filled activities.

The renovation project included the construction of new restrooms, the installation of new flooring, windows and fixtures as well as electrical service upgrades for the original, 50-year-old building. We also added an outdoor covered deck that makes it easier for our staff to get from one room to the next.

Camp Joy is an independent, nonprofit organization that started in a 315-acre dairy field nearly 75 years ago! Its original purpose—to provide a summer camp for children from disadvantaged backgrounds—has never changed. Just expanded. Today, it offers customized programs and hands-on learning experiences in a fun-filled outdoor setting for young children, teens and adults.
