Stetson University Conrad Hall
Stetson University Conrad Hall, a 50-year-old building, was renovated to meet modern codes and ADA requirements. Unforeseen and undocumented conditions complicated the building’s restroom renovation; however, creative solutions and complete commitment of team resources created problem solving solutions allowing the project completion to be on time.
The project scope for Stetson University Conrad Hall included demolition and replacement of all interior finishes, plumbing, electrical, and ventilation to provide new bathrooms, as well as exterior modifications to meet ADA requirements.
During our review of the existing building, and by reviewing old plans from the early 1900’s, our team realized this project had the potential of adding revenue producing dorm rooms in spaces that were underutilized in its current configuration. As a result, our team responded to the RFP by including the full renovation of all the community bathrooms along with adding four additional dorm rooms (eight revenue producing beds) as part of our proposal. All of this was accomplished while meeting the overall program budget and completing the work on time for student occupancy set forth by Stetson University.
