Conco is assisting with the redevelopment of the UC Davis Orchard Park Student Housing Project, located between Russell Blvd and Orchard Park Drive. Originally built in 1964, Orchard Park provided students with families housing. In 2015, the facility was closed for redevelopment. Currently in construction, Orchard Park is expected to reopen to residents in September 2023.
The full student housing project consists of 11 residential buildings, which include graduate student commons, family commons, a mail & package delivery center, and a maintenance building. The residential buildings are 4-story with slab on grade, and all other ancillary buildings are designed to be 1-story.
Orchard Park will have approximately 613 units holding a total of up to 1,549 beds, with the single graduate units leased by bed, and the family units leased by unit. The bed and units break down into about 189 2-bedroom family units and 1,108 graduate beds. Both family and graduate communities will have meeting space, communal kitchens, an exercise room, and flex space. The graduate community will have communal laundry units on each floor, while the family community will have in-unit washers and dryers. Additionally, the family community will have indoor and outdoor play areas for children.
As for parking solutions, Orchard Park is designed to be bicycle-oriented with focus on alternative transportation. On-site parking will be first priority for the family community, with nearby off-site parking.
Conco’s role is to provide complete concrete services including concrete pumping, concrete reinforcement, concrete formwork, concrete finishing, and shotcrete. We expect to place 8,300 cubic yards of concrete and shotcrete, and 700,000 pounds of reinforcing bar. We’re proud to contribute to a project that will increase affordability of student housing, enhance resident life, and provide exceptional residential operations.
