Once the Life Safety compliance was completed, work began on renovations to Libermann Hall which contained several projects on multiple floors (1st - 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th) in the building.
Work on the first floor included renovations to the PNC Recital Hall; toilet rooms for accessibility requirements compliance; ancillary support and office areas; new finishes; and mechanical, electrical and piping upgrades. Work to the 2nd, 7th and 8th floors and part of the 3rd floor included selective demolition, new work and associated mechanical, electrical, piping and fire protection work. The 4th floor renovation converted 2 general purpose classrooms into biomedical engineering labs and another classroom into a study and tutoring lounge for that department. The redesign of the 5th floor included the design of Simulation Labs and Control Room; an eight bed Skills Lab; thirty seat Computer Lab; ancillary support and office areas; and mechanical, electrical and piping upgrades.
