Baltimore, MD –
The Hall was constructed in 1963-64 as a laboratory building with offices and classrooms. A condition assessment and a study of the Hall's ability to accommodate a multi-disciplinary laboratory and support space was performed. The building is being updated to meet ADA accessibility guidelines, designed to conform to JHU High Performance Building Design Guidelines, and is to achieve a minimum LEED Silver Certification. LE and the University Design Team have collaborated to determine the best approach that provides maximum flexibility to accommodate a broad spectrum of science research labs. The renovation includes completely relocating the building core including the elevator, stair and central ducts. Construction costs are estimated at $17 million.
