Construction Completion | Northwestern University Wieboldt Hall

Wieboldt Hall Ii Select 12 Sm

Story:

To accommodate growth in Northwestern University’s School of Professional Studies, Bailey Edward recently opened 7,141 sf of flexible, active-learning classrooms and 6,700 sf of office administrative space in Wieboldt Hall, a 1926 Tudor-style building designed by James Gamble Rogers.

To address their wide-ranging programs – undergraduate, graduate, professional development and life-long learning – classrooms are designed to accommodate various class sizes as well as larger specialty events and arrangements in traditional, seminar, and work group formats. The upgrades to the systems not only corrected code deficiencies, but provided support for student interconnectivity and distance learning. All renovations were completed with a sensitivity to the historic fabric of the building, with both the windows and new mechanical penthouse reviewed by Chicago Landmarks, and to achieve LEED Certification for Commercial Interiors.
