Since Eddy Hall was constructed in 1963, it’s had a storied history. It was inundated with water during the flood of 1997, and historical documents say two entire academic departments were devastated. Despite such a history, the building has never undergone a major renovation during it 51-year lifespan, until now. A $12.5 million renovation of Eddy Hall began last May and is scheduled for completion this month. Eddy Hal currently houses the English and Philosophy departments, and will house Ethnic Studies when complete. “We are very excited at the prospect of a remodeled and revitalized Eddy Hall,” said Ann Gill, dean of the College of Liberal Arts. “Undergraduate students from every CSU college attend classes in Eddy, so there will be much to celebrate when this project is completed.” Grand entrance The renovated 69,457 square-foot building will include nearly 3,500 square feet of additional space when completed. The highlight will be a two-story glass-enclosed entrance on the building’s east side that will both enhance the building’s aesthetic appeal and alleviate crowding at the entrance that is common at Eddy. Other improvements include updated classrooms and faculty offices, wider hallways, new paint, new carpet and two additional new classrooms. The building will also include community gathering places called “Eddy’s Eddies.” Improvements inside and out The building’s exterior will be re-clad in stone to match the red sandstone theme on campus, and a landscaped plaza will be added off of the Academic Spine. This revitalization project prioritizes accessibility for students, faculty, staff and visitors with a disability, energy efficiency upgrades, while improving the overall building aesthetics. “The architecture of the addition is a further step towards a having a unified vocabulary of buildings on campus. The cladding of the north and south elevations of the building with ‘CSU’ red and buff sandstone and strategic use of glass curtain wall both increases the energy efficiency and further aligns this building with others on the Academic Spine,” said Fred Haberecht, assistant director of Facilities Management. New home for Ethnic Studies Ethnic Studies, currently located in Aylesworth, will be relocated to Eddy second floor (the former Communication Studies space) when the remodel is complete.
