Who's Building Student Housing

Who's Building Student Housing
A ranking of the top contractors in the student housing industry.

Student Housing Business recently conducted a survey of all contractors in student housing to see who the leading contractors were for the 2011-2012 and 2012-2013 academic years. To participate in our survey, contractors must have completed projects within the timeframe of Jan. 1, 2011 to Dec. 31, 2012. That window allows inclusion of projects readied for the 2011-2012 and 2012-2013 academic years. Our ranking of the top contractors is based on responses to the survey, and contractors are ranked by the number of beds constructed.

 

Student Housing Business made every effort to locate and contact all active contractors in the sector. To be included on this list in the future, please contact Editor Randall Shearin at randy@francemediainc.com.
