Project Description

UAB HONORS COLLEGE

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The UAB Honors College brings together intellectually curious students from all majors to form a close-knit community of emerging scholars. Students are offered enhanced curricular and co-curricular opportunities that are designed to stimulate high-ability students, build community and prepare them to accomplish their long term goals.

The project renovates the former Snoozy’s Bookstore into a new two-story, 11,000 square-foot Honors College. The building will include offices, classrooms, computer lab, study areas, student and faculty lounge areas, and exterior landscape courtyard space for student activities.

Efforts are being coordinated with other architectural disciplines to provide a comprehensive design.  Engineering services include topographic survey, civil site design, site grading and drainage plan, erosion and sediment control plans, utility systems design, civil construction details and construction administration.
