Carthage College – Residence Hall

Carthage College Residence Hall Interior with Gathering Space Seating Areas and Views

Carthage College is a four-year, private liberal arts college in Kenosha, Wisconsin. As part of their larger campus master plan to address student housing needs, Boldt was engaged to construct a new 52,000 SF, eight-story residence hall. Boldt worked in close collaboration with the architect and college on the design, constructability, cost and schedule of the new tower.

Separated by rated fire enclosures, this new tower links two existing residential facilities: The Joseph Johnson and Madrigrano Family Residence Halls. The first two floors contain office space and student life services, including lounges, gathering space, meeting rooms and a multi-functional lobby. The upper floors contain resident rooms and floor lounges. The building has a stand-alone HVAC system but is also served by the campus high voltage distribution duct bank, gas and water mains.
