The Willard O. Eddy Hall revitalization is a phased, $12 million aesthetic and life safety upgrade to a 51-year old academic and office building on the Academic Spine of CSU's main campus.
Construction cost for this 69,457 square foot revitalization is $8.5 million. It includes new mechanical and electrical systems, remodel of existing bathrooms, new windows, exterior skin upgrades, code and ADA upgrades, new fire sprinkler system, upgrades to the fire alarm system, and a new 3,565 sf steel frame addition on the building's east side.
A 3,500 sf, two-story glass-enclosed addition on the building's east side will serve as the structure's new entrance and alleviate the crowding common to Eddy Hall. Other improvements include updated classrooms and faculty offices, wider hallways, new paint and new carpet. The building will also include community gathering places called "Eddy's Eddies."
The building's exterior will be re-clad in brick and stone to make it match the red sandstone theme on campus, and a landscaped plaza will be added.
Eddy Hall, constructed in 1963, currently houses the English and Philosophy departments, and will house Ethnic Studies when complete. Apart from flood remediation following the 1997 flood, Eddy Hall has had no major renovation in its 51-year lifespan.
Phase I of the project will focus on construction on the south and east sides of building. Phase II will focus on the north and west sides of the building. All work is being conducted under occupied conditions.
