A complete interior demolition and renovation of the former housing areas within Hughes Hall, this project was Phase II of the Law School renovation and focused on the reorganization of academic departments, programs, and student organizations. These areas were converted into office, meeting, and work space for the Law School faculty and students. The project was broken into three phases — Phase I included a full interior demolition and reconstruction of Levels LL1, LL2, and LL3. Phase II was a partial renovation of Levels G, 1 and 2. Phase III was the completion of a stairwell to link all floors together. In all, 50,000 SF of floor space was renovated. The ground level entry was reconfigured with enclosure of the loggia for an interior connection to Myron Taylor Hall.
Hughes Hall remained partially occupied throughout construction. This presented many challenges to control noise associated with the demolition and reconstruction. Intricate planning was required to perform the extremely disruptive work during off hours. Because the project was phased, moving of faculty and staff between phases required a high level of planning and a series of occupancy inspections and approvals from AHJs.
