As part of the project, the university redeveloped 14 acres adjacent to both the academic and health system grounds as a vibrant mixed-use district. The development included a new signature street design with a bioretention median that would treat the entire district’s stormwater needs. In addition, new central utility infrastructure was extended to serve six new buildings, including chilled water, storm sewer, sanitary sewer, domestic water, low temperature hot water, a medium temperature hot water to low temperature hot water conversion hub, electrical ductbank, and communication service.

The project was submitted to ENR MidAtlantic by Barton Malow Holdings LLC.

“Having spent nearly four years working on this project, we are thrilled to see it through to completion and ultimately see it recognized by ENR MidAtlantic,” says Dewberry Project Manager Devin Keeler, PE, LEED AP. “UVA is a world-class educational institution and as it continues to attract students from across the globe, creating a new iconic district and improving the infrastructure systems were necessary tasks to accommodate the growth and expansion.”
