Project Description  
The Allen Hall Expansion and Remodel Project included a 23,011 sf addition in three stories and a basement to the existing building to accommodate the expanding School of Journalism and Communication and created an overall sense of building cohesiveness among the 1922, 1954, and 2012 wings. The addition includes additional office space for full-time, adjunct faculty, and graduate teaching fellows and two new classrooms. The renovation included energy and seismic upgrades to the existing 1922 north wing and 1954 west building and created a "Digital Commons" - a new teaching, learning, and collaborative digital work area centered on evolving curricular needs of digital media productions.

Grand Opening celebration is March 1, 2013.
