SOVA and The Indy: Student Apartments at Kennesaw State University
Terwilliger Pappas is wrapping up the development of a two-phased, private student-housing development on the southeastern edge of Kennesaw State University’s (KSU) rapidly growing campus. This new development lies within the Town Village mixed-use complex across from KSU’s Athletic Complex and Fifth Third Bank Stadium.
The multi-staged student-housing program consists of SOVA (Phase 1 – Completed in 2019) and The Indy (Phase 2 – Completed August 2020).
SOVA Kennesaw consists of five-story student-housing buildings wrapped around a 5-story parking deck. The student-housing complex has a total of 816 beds across its 248 units. The community also includes amenity spaces such as study rooms, fitness rooms, and a rooftop terrace.
The Indy consists of terraced five-story student-housing buildings adjoining a 6-story parking deck. The student-housing complex has a total of 543 beds across its 172 units. The community also includes various indoor and outdoor amenity spaces.
Working with developer Terwilliger Pappas and general contractor Katerra Southeast, Geo-Hydro provided construction materials testing and Special Inspections for both phases of the complex’s construction. Construction began in 2017 for SOVA and continued through August of 2020 for The Indy. With the completion of The Indy, students now occupy both complexes and are preparing for the semester to begin.
In addition to construction materials testing and Special Inspections, Geo-Hydro also provided geotechnical engineering and environmental consulting for this project. Prior to the second phase of construction, Geo-Hydro performed a subsurface exploration and a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment. These services were key in preparing for phase two of construction and completion of the complex.
Geo-Hydro is grateful for our continued relationship with Terwilliger Pappas that has allowed us to help build innovative living-spaces throughout Georgia. With our corporate office located in Kennesaw and many KSU alumni on our team, Geo-Hydro is a proud supporter of KSU. We’d like to thank Terwilliger Pappas and the other members of the SOVA Kennesaw project team for entrusting us to take part in creating this space to enrich our KSU Community
