The new $55 million Otter Student Union will provide a spectacular new hub on campus with three stories and 70,000 Sq.Ft. of space. The building will house the Otter Cross Cultural Center, a Starbucks, the University bookstore, group conference and study spaces, along with an array of retail and dining options. It will also contain professional staff and departmental offices.

The building’s design meets the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) silver certification with the possibility of achieving gold status. Bothman partnered with Gilbane Building Company to provide the structural and site concrete on this project. The scope of work included structural excavation and base rock, basement walls, site retaining walls, spread footings and grade beams, slab on grade, slab on metal deck, radiant flooring topping slabs, concrete polishing, flatwork, seat walls and curb & gutter.
