Student Housing Counts on Cold-Formed Steel for Safety and Sustainability

Much like the New Urbanism neighborhoods and transit-oriented development on the rise across the U.S., college dormitories increasingly reflect national housing trends that focus on community, access, and sustainability. Higher education institutions also seek to create environments that, in addition to being safe and nurturing for young adults going through a major life transition, appeal to their desire for environmental stewardship. These institutions are often challenged to balance such development against tight budgets and timeline constraints. In addition, the general demand for apartments is rising. According to a recent report, we’ll need to build 4.6 million new apartments between now and 2030 to keep up with the growing demand.

As a result, cold-formed steel construction has been increasingly used as a safe, sustainable, and cost-effective way to meet the complex challenges of student housing environments.
