Phase XVI Residence Hall Begins Construction Next Week

The new five-story, 147,000 sq.ft. residence hall replaces Moore Hall—a high-rise tower that was previously demolished. The remaining high-rise tower (Sanford Hall) will remain in place. The new residence hall will complete the front quad, connecting Levine Hall, Housing and Residence Life Operations, and provide a direct pathway to South Village Dining Hall. The residence hall design includes traditional double rooms supported by communal bathrooms, study lounges, laundry rooms, multi-purpose rooms, and apartment suites for resident employees.

The renovation improvements of the project center around a new chancel and choir loft that is highlighted by a new pipe organ. The scope includes aesthetic, acoustic and functional updates to the Sanctuary and Chancel, Sacristy, Apse, Transept, Welcome Center, and Historic Lobby. It also includes the addition of a new ADA lift to the top choir platform, new sanctuary lighting, and restoration of the heart pine wood floors. While focusing on the new chancel and choir configuration, the redesign includes an improved existing pulpit, marble floors, white oak millwork, bronze railings, and a piano lift that can be utilized for the relocation of the chancel furnishings to create a venue for recitals, performances, and other events.

When given the chance, an old building can often surprise in its ability to take on a new use. This adaptive re-use project at UNC Pembroke is a great example of transformation. Originally designed as a residence hall in 1965, West Hall now houses the IT Innovation Center for students and faculty. The team was excited to work with UNC Pembroke to breath new life into the structure, and provide the campus a building they can use for many years to come.
