Dormitories: Big Haus Bathroom and Interior Renovations Project

Complete renovations of the existing bathrooms and overall abatement of hazardous materials in the building.

Project Update as of October 12, 2019

This past summer, we completed the remaining renovations in A-B Wing (new interior finishes), as well as renovating the suite bathrooms and interior finishes in the C-Wing section of Crossroads.

Next summer we’ll be completing the interior renovations of C-Wing, as well as beginning new renovations on both B-Wing and D-Wing. 

Project Overview

The original u-shaped student dormitories, designed by the architectural firm Gwathmey-Siegel, and referred to as Big Haus, Crossroads, and Farside, have not had their originally designed and built bathrooms upgraded since the buildings were constructed in the early seventies. These bathrooms do not meet the current code requirements for accessibility and suffer from leaks and failing fixtures.

The College is undertaking a multiple-phased rehabilitation project to correct these deficiencies. The project scope includes complete renovations of the existing bathrooms and will include all new sinks, showers, toilets, floor, wall and ceiling finishes, and removal of any hazardous materials. Additionally, the project includes an overall abatement of hazardous materials in the building.

The focus will now turn to Big Haus. Due to the scope of the work involved, this project will be done only during the summer months to have the least impact on the students living in the dormitories.
