Riding the Crest: Student housing developer has found a way to grow while keeping costs low

March 21st, 2014

Company News

CHARLOTTE – Campus Crest in 2004 didn’t own and hadn’t built a single residential bed.

Nine years later, the Charlotte-based student housing developer is approaching 50,000 beds in 87 student-specific apartment communities, spread across 25 states. The company is also working on its first international community, which will be delivered next year in Montreal.

Ted Rollins, CEO of Campus Crest, said it all comes down to the quality of the people he has working for him. “We, from the start, wanted to attract the best folks, so we have been fortunate over the last nine years to have some of the best talent in the industry.”

But the steep rise of Campus Crest comes down to more than just its employees. Any developer could have attracted the talent. The real story behind the rapid growth is cost efficiency.

Campus Crest uses a business model known by different names: design/build, construction management, vertical integration. It all means the same thing – that the company is responsible for all aspects of its projects.
