Description:

  • The renovation of this 51-year-old, four-story building accommodates three major academic departments, with space to service several smaller departments and university organizations.
  • Work includes demolition and removal of the interior, as well as the existing mechanical and building utilities, and renovation of a 300-seat lecture room and several smaller classrooms, labs and offices.
  • BIM was used extensively to coordinate utility locations within the ceilings, as exposed ceilings were an important feature in the open and more spacious design.
  • The building is designed and constructed with green building methods and achieved LEED® Gold certification.
