University of Cincinnati Scioto Hall Renovation

Cincinnati, OH

We Are Building

This project included the renovation of a 142,000 sf, 16-story, concrete structure constructed for apartment style dormitory units. Construction provided a new exterior envelope curtainwall, new roofing, upgrades to the existing elevators, new interior finishes, new mechanical, electrical, fire alarm, telephone, data and CCTV, and plumbing and fire protection systems, in addition to miscellaneous structural elements. 

Features and Facts

Our team used prefabricated bathroom units on this project. The units arrived to the site complete with all bathroom fixtures and ready to install. Prefabricating the bathroom units led to a safer and cleaner site and enhanced schedule reliability and quality. 

Scioto Hall was renovated with recycled materials and featured environmentally friendly features such as an energy recovery system and the use of 2,000 glass panels that improves insulation.

The use of Building Information Modeling (BIM) enabled our team to virtually model the facility’s mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems prior to construction, ultimately reducing cost and increasing the reliability of the construction schedule.
