AUSTIN-Dirt is moving on a 60,000-sf dormitory on the St. Edward’s University campus in South Austin. The building is part of a broad construction initiative at the private four-year school that will erect a dozen new buildings on campus.

The $7.5-million project, which will house 180 students, consists of two larger buildings and two smaller ones. Norfolk, VA-based Hanbury Evans Newill Vlattas Design is the architect. The school currently has on-campus housing for 900 students in four dorms and two apartment buildings.

The school has an aggressive construction campus to add buildings to keep up with the projected doubling of its current enrollment of 3,800. Site work on an academic building began in June, but the slab is being poured today. Other construction includes more resident halls, theater, parking garage, chapel, several new athletic fields, new administration building and redesigned road system. Existing buildings, including the Scarborough-Phillips Library, also will receive face-lifts and expansions.
