Campus Crest is structured on a vertically integrated platform that includes development, construction, real estate management, and asset management. This operating platform allows us to control asset quality, reduce cost, increase delivery speed, improve operating efficiency, and ultimately, drive value for stakeholders.

“Our approach to student housing looks like none other,” said Ted Rollins, chief executive officer of Campus Crest Communities.  ted rollins build

Vertical integration has made it possible for us to implement prototype construction, where repetition of product has resulted in smarter construction, consistent operational practices, and a hospitality brand model across the portfolio.

“Our construction strategy includes repetition and refinement of prototype, a captive general contractor and construction manager, and captive wholesale supply that results in a 15-20% cost savings, giving Campus Crest a strong market advantage,” said Rollins.

The Horatio Alger Association of Distinguished Americans, Inc. bears the name of the renowned author Horatio Alger, Jr., whose tales of overcoming adversity through unyielding perseverance and basic moral principles captivated the public in the late 19th century. The Association, a 501(c) (3) nonprofit educational organization, was established in 1947 to dispel the mounting belief among the nation’s youth that the American Dream was no longer attainable.
