Western View Apartments completed phase I in 2011, and was the first new construction on-campus student housing at Western Michigan University in fifty years and added 330 beds for campus use. AVB completed the second phase of the project in August 2013, adding an additional 174 beds as well as a community building. In total between phases one and two, contributed 504 beds. On these LEED Certified phases, sustainability played a large factor in the construction and administration of the project, with 95% of all waste on site diverted from landfills through recycling materials. Other sustainable features included water efficient landscaping, access to public transportation, and the use of Low-Emitting Materials such as paint and flooring. In addition to coordinating the development of this project, AVB completed both phases of Western View as a Design/Build project.
