Pitt to spend $27 million to renovate 5 buildings
The University of Pittsburgh on Friday announced it will spend nearly $27 million to renovate five campus buildings.
Pitt’s properties and facilities committee approved the renovations to the Cathedral of Learning, Chevron Science Center, and Posvar, Scaife and Victoria halls. A timetable for the projects was not immediately available.
Posvar Hall on South Bouquet Street will see the most significant upgrades with renovations to about 22,050 square feet of space on the first and fourth floors. The project includes the construction of three lecture halls and an adjacent study space on the first floor. Work on the fourth floor will provide the Center for Urban Education with a more efficient floor plan, enhanced audiovisual systems, upgraded mechanical systems and energy efficient lighting.
The renovation on Posvar Hall is expected to cost more than $10 million.
Nearly 8,000 gross square feet of space will be renovated on the 17th floor of the Cathedral of Learning. Pitt said the project will consolidate its financial operations onto one floor at an estimated cost of $2.6 million.
