Construction Underway on Hillel Faith Center

The Douglas Company Orlando is hard at work on Jewish Faith Center at UCF Student Housing Complex.

Orlando, FL, June 20, 2013 --( The Douglas Company, of Orlando, Fla., has begun the interior build-out of the Hillel Faith Center at Northview Student Housing at UCF. The new area will provide students with several new features and amenities that the facility was previously lacking.

Construction is in full swing on the first and second floors of the Northview Student Housing building, and when finished will offer conveniences such as a commercial kitchen, café and dining area, theater, group meeting rooms, offices and conference rooms. Also included in the project scope are a game lounge, seating lounge, snack room, break room and new restrooms.

The Hillel facility will have a modern, “Google-inspired” theme and is designed to house creativity, social action, student leadership development and help bring Jewish activities to the community.

“It’s really wide open,” said Hank Katzen, chairman of the Board of Directors of Central Florida Hillel. “[The activities] include interest in politics, campus government, the environment, issues for children, pollution, Israel and international affairs. These activities are driven by the students’ interests so it’s a wide variety.”

The Hillel Faith Center has a contract value of over $1.7 million and consists of 19,223 square feet of new construction. The project, which is slated for completion this coming September, is owned by Central Florida Hillel, Inc. and features design by architects AIP Design Inc.
