The intent of this award is to recognize thoughtful interventions or restorations that create a
synergy between old and new construction.
This comprehensive renovation repurposed an unoccupied 1960s era dormitory to create a dynamic center for technology services and learning. Located in the heart of the UNC Pembroke campus, the three-story West Hall was among several options reviewed by UNCP and the design team to determine the most cost-effective and adaptable solution for consolidating the university’s data and IT services. The comprehensive renovation transformed the 40,659-sf facility into a highly sophisticated technology hub housing UNCP’s entire IT department, faculty / student learning centers, online education offices, living laboratory space, and some of the largest classrooms on campus.
