Wilmorite built the first purpose-built student housing project next to Duke University on a former gas station/service center site as part of the federal Brownfield Cleanup Program which encourages private-sector cleanup of brownfield site to revitalize the community. The brownfield program required significant removal of soils and an extensive testing and monitoring process throughout the construction of The Blue Light.
Wilmorite worked with local architects and engineers to design the building within stringent zoning in order to expedite the approval process and complete construction in the tight timeline.
