  • Varenhorst was asked to conduct a feasibility and design study for the addition of new academic office space, teaching space, and supporting program to be built on top of the existing building at University Plaza – a four story limestone building that housed a printing press.  The design accommodates an additional 230,000 SF of space on five new floors to be wrapped in an energy-efficient glazed skin.  The massing provides daylight openings and atrium spaces to bring a sense of openness and community to a building whose footprint is otherwise very deep.  Varenhorst also coordinated all structural engineering, geotechnical engineering, and cost estimation.
