LOCATION
Norman, Oklahoma

AREA
260,000 GSF

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
The Residential Colleges offer University of Oklahoma upperclassmen the opportunity to continue living on campus in a unique environment. The facilities are comprised of two 5-story residential towers connected to a central, single-story building, which contains a separate dining hall and private dining room for each college. A central kitchen provides food services to each college. Both the West and East College buildings house 316 students for a total of 632 residents.

PROJECT HIGHLIGHTS

  • Electrical service is provided from the campus distribution system.
  • Emergency power will be supplied via a centralized lighting inverter. The inverter can provide 120 minutes of backup power for egress lighting within the facility. The centralized lighting inverter is located in the basement storm shelters and is backed up by a standby generator.
  • Optional standby power is supplied by one diesel-fueled engine generator located outdoors, in sound-attenuated, weather-protected, reach-in enclosures. The engine generator features a double-wall, in-base fuel tank, radiator, and silencer.
