The Norman Hall rehabilitation project is making great progress, with the new conference center expected to be done early in July. According to a construction update from Scorpio, new drywall has been installed and is currently being painted while other finishes are put in. Next steps include installation of the ceiling tile grid, as well as tile in the bathrooms and piping in preparation for the new air conditioning.
A Sustainable Future
Part of the Norman Hall rehabilitation project includes energy and environmental sustainability. Norman Hall will be designated a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold-certified building, the second highest designation available. Jason Diven, project manager with Scorpio, states that “all of the air conditioning systems and all the electrical systems have been designed specifically to use less energy altogether.” Norman Hall will pave the way for the future, both in its inhabitants and in its structure.
