An Expanding Campus
With rapid student population growth, the University of South Florida’s St. Petersburg campus was fast outgrowing its footprint and needed a new structure to house new living and study spaces.
To meet this need, Dallas-based Beck Group created Osprey Suites—a new structure offering 375 new beds and nearly doubling the available on-campus housing space for students. Nawkaw’s expert Stain Technicians were able to realize Beck Group’s vision of a campus in harmony with itself through the use of official school colors and semi-translucent stain.
The finished structure evokes the strength of concrete, highlights the beauty of Beck Group’s design, and gives the University of South Florida a campus to be proud of.
To achieve their vision, Korteco partnered with Nawkaw to stain and create a natural range of color across the tilt-up textured concrete. Nawkaw’s professional Stain Technicians were able to emulate the materiality desired while managing tight deadlines and showcasing the versatility of tilt-up construction.
The final building offers active service members a space to work, train, and enjoy leisure time within the same complex and structure.

An Award-Winning Performance Hall
Just outside of Sydney, Australia, St. Mark’s Catholic College looked to expand its campus with a new performance hall. The proposed 21,000 sq. ft. multipurpose hall would need to house specialist drama, dance, and audio facilities and over 1,000 patrons. Furthermore, a modern aesthetic and innovative finish designed by the Morson Group was needed to match not only the pre-existing campus, but the prestige of events hosted inside.
Nawkaw Stain Technicians rose to the specifications, applying long-lasting mineral stain and a photocatalytic finishing system designed to protect the structure from graffiti, dirt, and debris. The finalized structure is a striking addition to the campus and won the 2019 award for Excellence in Construction from the Master Builders Association.
