Witte Hall, an existing residence hall comprised of two high-rise towers on top of a connected full first floor and basement, is currently undergoing a full renovation and addition to link both towers on all floors. The heating system, plumbing system, electrical system, doors, windows, utilities, building security, emergency generators, and fire pumps will be replaced along with modification of the fire sprinkler system. The project includes life safety, and ADA/access upgrades, both inside and outside the building, including move-in and move-out planning. The lower level and first floor resident life, classroom and office space will also be remodeled, and two apartments for on-site managers will be provided. The project consolidates new elevators, key mechanical equipment, accessible resident entry, and resident life space into the new connecting tower.
