Project Description:

The North DeBot Residence Halls—Watson and Thomson—underwent renovations during the summers of 2014 and 2015, respectively, to improve accessibility, safety, and function. The residence halls were modified to be ADA-accessible with private baths on the second and fourth floors, a five-stop elevator, and an exterior ramp to the lobby level to accommodate mobility-restricted residents. The scope of work included:

  • Fire sprinkler suppression system
  • Ramp and patio reconstruction
  • Window replacements with energy-efficient frames and glazing
  • Elevator installation
  • Lighting and data upgrades
  • Thin-coat plaster over existing block walls
  • Interior finish and furniture upgrades, along with front desk lobby and lounge area upgrades
