This 9-story facility was originally constructed in the 1960’s. It encompasses approximately 95,000 square feet. The project includes extensive demolition. New windows were installed along with new mechanical and electrical systems. The project maintained the historic fabric of the original design while incorporating new features that are attractive to the 21st century student. The residence hall was renovated to achieve a more open and welcoming lobby floor through the use of glazing and wall revisions. Each floor’s common areas are more open to foster student events and gatherings. Additionally, small “niche” areas were created throughout the residence hall to encourage relation and study areas. Project was designed to achieve LEED Silver Equivalent.
