Project Challenges and Outcomes
The renovation of three existing residence halls of Tener, Brumbaugh, & Pinchot Halls will be a part of the East Halls Phase 1 Project. The buildings are Tower Halls, which are currently the biggest in the East Hall quadrant at ten stories and approximately 75,000 SF. The halls have mainly double occupancy rooms with some Resident Assistant single rooms and 301 beds each. These three halls will have both single user bathrooms that have a shower and toilet to allow for privacy and additional toilet only restrooms on each floor. Tener, Brumbaugh, and Pinchot Halls will be renovated as part of Phase 1C with an estimated construction cost of $21.6 million each and be completed in Fall 2019.
