Downs Hall is a 175-unit student housing community with a dining facility on the University of Kansas main campus. The community’s four- and five-story buildings offer 548 beds in dormitory-style apartments as well as common area amenities including a lounge, multi-purpose conference rooms, open study areas, laundry facilities, and a courtyard with dining areas. The commercial dining facility is a steel one-story attachment containing multiple kitchens and seats up to 400 students. In combination with Stouffer Place Apartments, Downs Hall is the largest Prescient project completed to date and the first public-private partnership constructed with Prescient.
Downs Hall features a variety of sustainable elements including continuous exterior insulation, TPO roofing, low-flow water fixtures, LED lighting, and energy-efficient appliances and windows. The community is constructed using patented 3D technology from USA-based Prescient, which pre-designs, builds, and ships project segments for greener and more efficient building.
