CHARLOTTE, N.C. (Aug. 27, 2015) — The University of North Carolina Charlotte has contracted with Woolpert to renovate the five campus buildings that make up the school’s Academic Complex.
The $14.5 million budgeted for construction will provide for upgrades to the facilities’ mechanical, electrical and plumbing, and the installation of a fire protection system.
In addition to accessibility upgrades, the project will provide new interior finishes and exterior windows, and will address minor building settlement.
Project Manager David Welling works from Woolpert’s Charlotte office.
“Being a UNCC grad and having attended classes in these buildings, I’m very excited to be part of the team for this important project,” Welling said. “Recently, the trend has been to renovate the state’s capital infrastructure. The end result of this project will provide a more comfortable learning environment for the students.”
Woolpert is an architecture, engineering and geospatial firm focusing on higher education projects.
With offices in the Carolinas and throughout the United States, the Dayton, Ohio-based company has ongoing university projects with University of North Carolina Charlotte, The Citadel, Miami University, West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine, Georgia Southern University, Norfolk State University and Tuskegee University, among others.
