Carleton University – Prescott House

Project Value:$19 Million


Between 2000 and 2007, ZW assisted Carleton University in completing 17 separate new construction and renovation projects to expand and revitalize the campus. Many of the projects in this $250M program ran concurrently and on fast-tracked schedules. The Prescott House was part of this revitalization.

A unique endeavor for this Residence was the change from the University’s standards of keying each suite to using a card swipe system that would work well for the summer Tour and Conference program.

This housing building is a 400-bed residential facility. Each floor offers a public area t.v. lounge and study room. All suites offer kitchens with a microwave and fridge and the facility was fully furnished. The complex was completed within a year of starting construction and opened for the first occupants moving in on Labor Day Weekend.
