WSU Troy Hall Renovation

Renovation of the 50,202-sf brick building which was converted into a modern, integrated science facility that brings together the Department of Chemistry and the School of the Environment while preserving Troy Hall’s historic roots. The design retained all of the exterior brick walls, but the interior was gutted and rebuilt using new materials that required fewer bulky support columns, which opened up significantly greater amounts of floor space on each of the building’s four levels. Also, a 6,000-sf addition was built onto the north side of the building for additional office and study space. The labs are designed to support student and research chemists but have built-in flexibility to serve engineering, agriculture, biotechnology, medicine, dentistry, nursing, pharmacy, and veterinary students.
