The Hayden-Clark Alumni Center is an expansion of Bradley Hall, Bradley University’s founding structure constructed in 1897. The addition is styled after Collegiate Gothic architecture featured across campus, with a limestone exterior that matches the character of the existing building. The central tower is topped with four hand-carved gargoyles, two of which match those atop Bradley Hall and two that represent the campus’ western expansion.
To renovate the circa-1875 courthouse, we repaired the building’s windows, wood trim, doors, wainscot, and other finishes. The HVAC, plumbing, fire protection, security, and IT systems were replaced. The county supported our vision for restoring the courtroom space to its full height and original design, bringing the vaulted ceilings, hidden for years behind acoustic ceiling, back to life. In addition to the courtroom renovation, the main hallway and staircase were restored, offices were remodeled and reconfigured, and the basement was remodeled.
Our modernization of the second oldest building on campus has made Westlake Hall six times its original size, with a new center atrium, classrooms, labs, resource areas, an auditorium, offices, and conference spaces. All spaces in the building now provide students with an inviting place for collaboration, supporting cross-disciplinary study and problem-solving.
126,000 square foot renovation of an existing building.
Work Included: Re-plastering and repair of water damage, stained glass window restoration, altar and furnishings restoration, new marble flooring in the nave and sanctuary was installed, new painted angels installed in the apse in the sanctuary, and a beautiful blue ceiling was painted the length of the nave – decorated with the heavenly theme of a starry night sky.
