The University of Colorado is arranging the renovation plans on the Kittredge West Hall, a college dorm in the campus. The university plans to spend $20 million for the college dorm’s renovation. The renovation project is fifth among the six series of renovations for the Kittredge dorm community.
One of the largest college residence halls in Virginia Tech campus is also undergoing renovations for improvements for its students. The $75 million renovation has already started with the expected completion date on August 2011.
The university’s Boar of Regents has a scheduled meeting regarding the renovation project, as well as approving its construction plans on the college dorm.
Renovation on the college dorm is designed to combine better campus living and learning. The newly renovated college dorm is said to house seminar-style classrooms and faculty apartments, and become the model for the school’s “residential academic programs”.
About 2,500 floor space will be added to the existing 71,797-square-foot student residential hall, according to the renovation plan. The residence hall’s building was originally constructed in 1892.
The last of the series of renovation will be on the Kittredge Common, which the school plans to tear the existing building and replace it with a new building that can house 250 beds.
CU has already renovated other residences within the Kittredge dorm community including Buckingham, Andrews, and Arnett halls. Renovation costs for the projects is between $14 million to $16 million, according to Facilities Management spokesperson at CU, Megan Rose.
The student dorm’s renovation will commence May 2012 until the expected completion date on August 2013. It will have new spacious suites to attract more sophomores, juniors and seniors to the college dorm.
