In July 2014, Bellevue College recruited Spectrum to assist them in completing a feasibility study for a new residence hall.
The purpose of the study was to develop program needs with Bellevue College. The process consisted of reviewing existing site information and land use criteria to identify potential project sites, and then determine if a student housing development project for Bellevue College could be undertaken that would be financially supported by the revenue generated from rents. The study was based off a total of 1,000 residential beds that could potentially be built in more than one phase. Spectrum evaluated everything from market research on existing residential and planned residential properties near the Bellevue campus to topographic surveys and soil and environmental investigations. Spectrum also put together preliminary floor plans and layouts along with building massing in order to enable the creation of a preliminary budget, cash flow analysis and proforma model.
