Withycomb Hall renovations

Project Description

The Withycombe Hall Renovation will redesign both the east and west sides of the building for capital improvement and renewal of building systems. The Dairy Processing Facility will be prioritized in the first phase to create a research and learning space for the dairy science program and a public outreach retail space for products produced in the program.

  • Seismic safety improvements

  • Roof and rooftop systems renewal
  • General interior and exterior finish renewal
  • Major and minor interior configuration changes for usefulness and efficiency
