I am working on a dormitory building at a boarding school that will also include faculty apartments. The student dorms will be comprised of single and double bedrooms. There will be shared lounge spaces for all students, shared bathrooms and one kitchen. Each faculty apartment will include private bedrooms, a private kitchen and living space along with private baths.
It is unclear whether or not the student dorm rooms count as residential space since they do not have their own private kitchens and bathrooms. But it has also been stated that the definition residential spaces are at the project team’s discretion.
Would this project be categorized as New Construction or a Home? Would there be any advantages to choosing one over the other?
