Student Housing Apartments Complete in Raleigh
August 8, 2018
We are proud to announce the successful delivery of Theory Raleigh, a luxurious community of off-campus student apartments for those attending North Carolina State in Raleigh. The students move in Monday!
The location brought many logistical challenges, to say this was a "tight one" would be an understatement. The project was bordered by Hillsborough Street (the main NC State thoroughfare), a private residence, a dentist office, a law office, Park Avenue, and the YMCA. In many places, the building was only feet from the property line. We would like to thank all the neighbors for their patience, and feel we are leaving the neighborhood with a huge improvement.
And an extra THANK YOU to the team involved in bringing this project to life - we couldn’t do it without our Subs, Vendors, and #TeamSummit, who all brought immense dedication to the success and final quality of this build.
This student housing community consists of 505 beds in 1 five-story building, 1 six-story parking garage, pool, fitness center, study areas, and community spaces.

Shelters to Shutters (S2S), a national non-profit that transitions individuals and families from homelessness to economic self-sufficiency, today announced it has received a $100,000 donation from Jacksonville, Fla.-based Summit Contracting Group, the apartment industry's largest general contractor representing over 100,000 completed multifamily units.
"We are thrilled to have Summit as a Leadership Circle sponsor," said Andy Helmer, CEO of S2S. "We are very proud of the impact we've had and the lives we've transformed since our founding four years ago. This gift significantly strengthens our ability to transition ready-to-work individuals experiencing homelessness into employment and housing opportunities with our apartment industry partners. We cannot thank Summit enough for taking a leadership role in supporting our mission." …
Summit is honored to be ranked in the Top 400 Contractors in the Nation! From ENR:
“The construction market is cyclical. Executives at large U.S. contractors understand this and also understand that the current booming market will not last forever. However, despite the fact that this is one of the longest domestic upswings on record, few see signs that it will abate any time soon. So they are working hard now to take advantage of the opportunities available without losing sight of what the future may bring.”
We celebrated Luke Roy last night who is an honoree for the Jacksonville Business Journal's 40 Under 40 Awards.
Congratulations Luke! From the Business Journal:
"Roy, who has spent almost 20 years in construction, began working for Summit Contracting Group in 2011 as an estimator and has since moved his way up to become the company’s Director of Preconstruction Services, leading a seven-person team. But the accomplishment Roy is most proud of isn’t career-related at all – it’s his three kids, two of whom were adopted after he and his wife fostered them. He said the fact that he has a job that allows him to be home when he needs to be is one of the most important things about it. Outside of work, Roy teaches choir to elementary school kids through his church. He is also involved in the Promise to Kate Foundation, which funds research of Myotonic Dystrophy and every Thanksgiving he volunteers at Trinity Rescue Mission to help feed Jacksonville’s homeless population."
