Located on the southwest side of College Station and 2 mi from Texas A&M University, the 21.5 acres that make up the 2818 Place student apartment community sit on top of an agricultural overflow governed by the Army Corps of Engineers. Jordan Construction was tasked with working around and through wetlands, heavily wooded areas and wildlife habitats to complete the project.
Per Texas Department of Environment Quality requirements, there was to be no infiltration of erosion into the area. That required Jordan to maintain strict erosion control throughout the building process to ensure that none of the protected areas were endangered or damaged.
The student housing project is located on acreage that fell within the jurisdictions of two different utility suppliers. The two utility companies had vastly different specifications, which meant two separate construction crews would be working simultaneously. Attention to detail and careful management were the keys to success given the difficult situation.
