The construction and renovation of two MU residence halls will be considered by the University of Missouri’s Board of Curators this week.
During meetings Thursday and Friday in Rolla, the board will decide whether to pay Kansas City firm International Architects Atelier $875,000 to develop plans to renovate Hatch Hall, at the corner of Rollins Road and College Avenue.
The renovation is estimated to cost $18,443,637 and includes the conversion of some standard double rooms into two-bedroom semi-suites and renovations of common areas. Other changes planned include central air conditioning, new fire alarms and sprinklers.
The board will also make a decision about International Architects Atelier’s schematic design of the College Avenue Housing project proposed by Residential Life.
The estimated cost of that hall’s construction is $17,954,510. If approved, the hall is scheduled to open in fall 2006, said Harriet Green-Sappington, MU’s Residential Life assistant director of facilities planning and development.
