Springfield, MA

This 34,000 sf renovation and expansion covers two floors and includes a full service student dining facility. An existing entrance to the dining hall was converted into an area for additional seating, and a new atrium entrance was built for easier access to all the building’s amenities.

The atrium addition offers necessary updates including handicap elevators, new bathrooms and storage lockers, and provides a main focal entrance to the building. It also improves visibility of the entrance to the lower level student bar and lounge, known as “The Stinger” that was previously concealed in the old entrance.
