Hannah Administration Building - fourth floor renovations

Project phase: Planning/Design


  • The Hannah Administration Building was constructed in 1968. Since that time, portions of the building, including space on the fourth floor have remained largely unchanged.
  • The current configuration of the space is inefficient, inadequate to accommodate personnel, and lacks functionality.
  • By renovating the fourth floor, the university can reconfigure the space to optimize its use, co-locate key personnel, and create a more modern work environment.
  • The goal is to create an environment that conveys a sense of professionalism commensurate with a major teaching and research institution.


  • The project is anticipated to focus on utilizing available space in a more collaborative manner and making security enhancements.
  • This includes the reconfiguration of existing office and conference room space; the addition of a shared reception area, single occupant accessible toilet room, and day-lighting; and upgrades to utilities, technology, furnishings and finishes.


  • The preliminary project cost estimate is $1,500,000 - $2,000,000. This estimate may change as the project and its scope are refined during the planning process.
  • The source of funds for the project is expected to be non-general funds.
