Project Summary

The Project is comprised of an approximately 30,000 GSF renovation and a 22,117 GSF addition to the existing vacant sister building to Printing and Mail Services located directly across Kirkbride Lane. This facility, formerly referred to as Searcy Hall (the Searcy Hall name was temporarily assigned by the University as a placeholder when the Peter Bryce Campus was occupied in 2014 and was not an honorary or official name), will house the Department of Psychology that will be relocating from Gordon Palmer Hall.

The existing building features a column-free interior space with appropriate floor-to-floor heights and numerous windows for exceptional natural light, which makes the building appropriate for adaptive reuse.

The Kirkbride elevation will primarily remain unchanged and will continue to complement the adjacent Printing and Mail facility. The addition will be on the south elevation along Peter Bryce Boulevard.

The addition will provide the opportunity for the facility to architecturally engage Peter Bryce Boulevard, a primary vehicular and pedestrian campus corridor; provide a main entrance and pedestrian connectivity point to campus; and unify the building with campus architecture. Careful attention will be committed to material selection, massing and detailing as appropriate to ensure the addition matches the existing building and adheres to campus standards and design principles.

The Project will preliminarily include a large lecture hall with seating for 136 and an additional classroom with 40 seats; 35 clinical labs and additional shared labs; 41 offices; shared Graduate Student offices; and appropriate service and support space. An elevator, all new mechanical, plumbing, electrical and life safety systems, and all University standard enterprise systems such as networking, access control and security, and audio-visual technology will be provided to bring the building to code and to support the academic mission of the Department.

An alternate to expand the large lecture hall to 234 seats, or approximately 2600 GSF is requested to be awarded with the bid.

Previously, as appropriate to stabilize the building, the University installed campus standard windows, an aluminum cornice system, and a shingle roof, and that investment will be maintained and utilized for the benefit of the Project. The University will also be able to leverage the knowledge gained from the construction of the Printing and Mail facility as the structure and detailing are exactly the same for the two buildings.

The Project will be closely coordinated with the Kirkbride Lane Parking Lot project to ensure efficient execution and alignment of both Projects and includes the completion of the area of parking lot located within the Psychology project site.
