With construction complete, new living-learning center opens for fall semester
Jacksonville, Fla. (September 8, 2015) – Brasfield & Gorrie today announced that the company has completed construction of Infinity Hall, a new residence hall located at The University of Florida’s Innovation Square in Gainesville. The new living-learning center has opened to students for the fall semester.
With a capacity to accommodate more than 300 residents, the facility’s four floors of residence suites include eight single rooms, 16 single-suite rooms, 48 double-suite rooms and 20 four-person-suite rooms. The facility also includes team meeting rooms, an entertainment room, flexible spaces to support The University of Florida’s entrepreneurship programs, a resident apartment and a maintenance shop.
Privately developed by Signet Development in partnership with The University of Florida Department of Housing and Residence Education, Infinity Hall is the nation’s first entrepreneurial-based academic residential community. Specifically designed for students interested in entrepreneurship, the living-learning community aims to expose students to the startup community, local entrepreneurs and CEOs.
Serving as construction manager-at-risk, Brasfield & Gorrie’s Jacksonville, Florida, office partnered with developer and owner Signet Development and architect Perkins+Will on this $15.9 million construction project. The team broke ground on the student residence in 2014 and completed the project on schedule.
