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.
