Originally constructed in the late 1850s as a residence hall and the home of the Dialectic Society, New West Hall was gutted and had a new interior inserted in the late 1920s. By 2002, the building was long overdue for a complete renovation and HagerSmith Design was hired to carry out the project. The new work needed to respect the character of the historic structure, while also providing for a host of new systems. In order to meet code requirements, deteriorated fire escapes were removed, a new interior fire stair was constructed, and an elevator was added to the building for the first time. Completely new plumbing, electrical, voice/data, fire protection and HVAC systems were installed throughout. New mechanical rooms were excavated in the crawl space at the East and West ends of the building. Metal roofs were replaced, the stucco and plaster was patched and all windows were replaced. In addition, the work was designed to meet the requirements of a LEED silver rating.
