Among contracts recently awarded to Oldcastle Precast Building Systems are three for student residence halls at Northeast campuses. Gilbane Building Co. enlisted the precaster in construction of a four-story dormitory near Fairfield University’s Quad Campus in Fairfield, Conn. In addition, Oldcastle is supplying precast for a new 400-bed, seven-story residence hall at Framingham State College that will occupy a highly visible site at the campus entrance Û a significant element in the master plan that Consigli Construction expects to complete for the fall 2011 semester. A third contract entails casting hollowcore plank for East View Residence Hall on York Campus Û Oldcastle’s second dormitory at Quinnipiac University in Hamden, Conn. Û to be built by FIP Construction. The three Oldcastle Precast contracts, totalling 201,682 sq. ft. of hollowcore plank, exceed $2 million.
As the hospitality industry continues to develop new offerings despite a shaky economic recovery, Oldcastle Precast Building Systems was awarded projects for two new hotels in the tri-state area. A new Hyatt hotel in Suffolk County, N.Y., will incorporate hollowcore plank as its floor and roof systems. The five-story, 100-room Hyatt Place Hotel is part of a plan funded by a $2.4 million New York State Empire State Development Corp. grant awarded to the Town of Riverhead towards ongoing redevelopment of its downtown, leading to expansion of underutilized properties adjacent to the existing Atlantis Marine World Aquarium. Additionally, a new Holiday Inn Express is earmarked for Dickson City, Pa. The two projects combined total more than $1.1 million and include 110,000-plus sq. ft. of hollowcore plank, stairs and landings.
