Located at the heart of the University of Florida campus, the project consists of the complete renovation of the second floor and the north half of the third floor of historic Peabody Hall. Peabody Hall is one of the oldest buildings on campus and is on the National Register of Historic Places and part of the University of Florida’s Historic Campus District. The renovations will comply with best practices for historic buildings while creating a new image for students, faculty, and staff.
The project includes redesigning the second floor and partial third-floor plan to accommodate Dean of Students programs, provide up-to-date ADA access, a new reception area with secure access to staff. This includes reception, offices, conference rooms, code-compliant restrooms, break room, and mechanical systems support as required. When complete the renovated gross square footage will be approximately 13,100.
