The Smiddy Hall Renovations and Information Technology
(IT) Wing project included the renovations of existing
Smiddy Hall and the addition of a new IT wing of
approximately 6,000 gsf. The total project square
footage was approximately 30,500 gsf. The renovation
scope of work included replacement of all windows,
interior finishes, HVAC, fire protection
sprinkler and alarm), electrical
and plumbing systems. The existing lobby and west
portion of the building were demolished, with a
replacement addition for administrative offices and a
double height main entry that can also be used as an
informal meeting space.
The new I.T. wing, completed in December 2009, is a two
story addition located on the east side of Smiddy Hall.
The I.T. Wing houses the new campus data center, faculty
and staff offices and support space. Primary power will be
supported by a back-up generator power source, to ensure
continuous operations of all mission critical IT systems.
Smiddy Hall is located in a prominent location at the new
entry to the College. The renovations to the Smiddy Hall
made the building better conform to the College's design
guidelines and harmonize with other nearby, recent building
designs. Smiddy Hall is adjacent to the Front Entry project
and south of the Bascom Slemp Student Center.
