Nabholz constructed Adohi Hall, a brand new 202,027-square-foot, 708-bed sustainable residence hall and living-learning community at the University of Arkansas.
Notably, this is the nation’s first large-scale mass timber project of its kind, and the University choose to make this a pilot project that proves mass timber works and can greatly benefit Arkansas’s economy. To ensure this project was a success, Nabholz visited job sites across the country to learn about this material, developed a quality control program specific for mass timber, and trained a team of craft workers to be master installers of this product.
The significance of pioneering the use of an alternative material couldn’t overshadow the University’s ultimate goals — to create quality student housing on time and within the budget, while running a site that kept student safety a top priority. On all three of those counts, we’re proud to say we delivered what we promised to our clients.
