The Design-Build project is 44,000 square-feet and contains a cafe on the first floor with the bookstore retail space on floors 1 and 2. Offices for the bookstore operation, the University Development Department and Real Estate Foundation are located on the 3rd and 4th floors.

The design includes a 3-story oval-shaped curtain wall surrounding the main entrance, featuring revolving doors. The interior contains escalators, glass handrails and a 2-story atrium.

Construction took place on a tight urban site with only 20 feet surrounding all sides. The use of hydro-scaffolding in lieu of the typical scaffolding minimized the room required for accessibility.

This renovation project transformed historic Spence Hall, a former library originally constructed in 1897, into the Early Center for Christian Education and Worship, a multi-purpose facility at Union Presbyterian Seminary. The former library stacks were demolished to create the three-story open space.

Other areas in the 37,000 square-foot building include classrooms, administrative offices, conference rooms and a full-service kitchen. In the chapel, giant side doors can be opened to gain additional seating for two adjacent classrooms. The doors connecting the chapel and the classrooms were built on-site and weigh nearly 1,500 pounds each.

There are 6,700 square-feet of added office space on the 3rd floor, and the 4th floor is dedicated to storing the society’s archives.

The project site was constrained by continuous operations at adjacent cultural attractions and a tight footprint for the building addition. These issues were overcome through collaborative planning and communications with stakeholders throughout the project.

The 3-story, 38,000 square-foot building required a complete interior renovation, since it was a cast-in-place concrete structure with insulated metal panels, brick and pre-cast concrete cladding. The space was designed and constructed to include small classrooms, inside play areas, administrative spaces, and special education rooms. New interior finishes enhance the architect’s design by using color and floor textures, interesting wall configurations, millwork and ceiling designs. A new 3-stop elevator was installed, as well as new plumbing, security and telecommunications systems.

A drop-off, visitor parking and handicap access enhance the front entrance of the building, and private outdoor teaching patios and play areas complete the exterior modifications.
