The Shriver Center opened in 1958 as Miami University’s first student center. The building still operates as a student center and is open to the public as an event space. This is a 60,000 sf renovation to an existing 130,000 sf building. It includes a bookstore, banquet halls, an auditorium, a kitchen, testing centers and offices.


  • Throughout construction, the building remained operational and the project team worked to ensure the safety of students, staff and guests was maintained at all times.
  • Building Information Modeling (BIM) enabled our team to virtually model the mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems prior to construction, ultimately reducing cost and increasing the reliability of the construction schedule.
  • There were upgrades to all major MEP systems and a new elevator shaft through the middle of the existing facility.
