GSP Dorm Renovation

University of Kansas

The University of Kansas chose McCownGordon through a qualifications-based selection process to lead the extensive renovation of the GSP residence hall and dining facility, originally built in 1955, bringing it into the 21st century. Construction included expansive MEP upgrades, tenant improvement, new lighting, and new elevators. The team also completely renovated the bathrooms providing additional facilities for the students. Another significant upgrade was converting the existing kitchen and dining facility to modern day standards. The facility services both the GSP and Corbin residence halls and received a complete overhaul to serve the campus. With significant daily traffic, serving more than 500 people per meal, the kitchen and dining areas underwent significant demolition and build-back with replacement of all equipment, storage areas, preparation and serve areas, lines, and layout of the overall facility. 

Your company was selected for this project in large part due to its accountability in terms of delivering projects on time and within budget. Both goals were met due to the exceptional management of the construction process and the outstanding communication that was maintained with all parties throughout the project.
