The Opus Group

Sambatek has worked with Opus and the University of St. Thomas since 2007 on four key projects for the Saint Paul campus. Projects include a new athletic center, student center, chapel addition, and a new first-year dormitory. The projects have included underground stormwater systems, tunnels, subsurface parking, and significant utility coordination with the existing infrastructure.

The City of Saint Paul has approved all improvements according to the site plan review and building permit processes, including design work, and permitting for utility and street connections with the public right-of-way.

Situated at the northern end of the campus, specifically at the intersection of Selby and Cleveland avenues, is a five-story residence hall spanning 210,000 square feet. This facility accommodates 480 students in around 255 mostly double occupancy rooms, offering several single occupancy alternatives. The rooms, secured with access control, are distributed across the second to fifth floors. Each residence level is equipped with study rooms, lounges, and shared spaces for the convenience of all residents. Additionally, a spacious laundry room can be found on the second level.
