Preferred Materials Concrete Division in Orlando recently completed a unique 30 million dollar student housing development near the UCF campus called the Retreat.  The Retreat is Orlando’s first gated student housing neighborhood community designed with 221 multi-bedroom cottages (in contrast to typical apartment-style structures) a clubhouse, pool, and fitness center.

Collegiate Construction, headquartered in Bogart Georgia, was the General Contractor on this extremely fast-paced project. A typical daily schedule included multiple crews working different phases of the buildings (footers, slabs, walks, block, and cell fill), simultaneously. Preferred Materials supplied the Retreat in excess of 10k cubic yards of concrete, 60k concrete block and most importantly completed the job with a perfect safety record.  The Retreat is scheduled to open on time for the Fall Semester of 2014.
