Pomerene Hall houses the University’s Translational Data Analytics Institute, Department of History of Art, and Undergraduate Data Analytics Major designated spaces. To make room for these additions, the Office of Disability Services moved into simultaneously renovated space in Baker Commons, also a part of the Mirror Lake District renovation project. EEI commissioned the halls from the design stage through warranty.
Pomerene Hall is a 73,300 SF, 3-story plus basement, brick Jacobethan Revival style building constructed in 1922 and originally functioned as the women’s student union.
Oxley Hall is a 30,765 SF, 3-story plus basement, brick English Renaissance style building constructed in 1908 that was built as the first women’s dormitory on campus.
Both facilities received full mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems upgrades as well as space renovations. Due to the historic construction and significance of both halls, particular care was taken by the project team to retain the original characteristics and feel of the structures. The project is registered with the USGBC for a minimum of LEED Silver certification.
