Turner and Clark Builders Awarded Contract to Build Student Housing for University of Fraser Valley

January 26, 2023

The sustainably built facility will be in the heart of campus and will offer students an affordable housing option.

Turner Construction Company and Clark Builders are pleased to announce that they have been selected to build student housing at the University of Fraser Valley in British Columbia. The six-storey, $73 million mass timber building will provide 398 beds on the University’s Abbotsford campus.

The student housing facility will provide lounges, shared kitchens, study, and mixed-use and cultural space. The project will integrate Passive House Building Certification standards.

The project will be delivered through the Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) method that results in increased efficiency and engagement of all project participants through all phases of design, fabrication, and construction. The construction team will include modularization and pre-fabrication into the building program.

Construction will begin this year and be ready for occupancy in the Fall of 2024.

“We are extremely excited to begin work on this housing project,” said Amit Patel, Vice President and General Manager of Turner Construction Company. Amit continued, “It is great to be part of an extremely collaborative process that will result in environmentally friendly housing for students attending the University of Fraser Valley.”
