Univ of Florida College of Design Construction Planning
The original 1977 design included a canopy over the atrium which was omitted during construction and the building has had water problems since completion in 1981. This $9.5 mil renovation includes a holistic solution for water hazards throughout the building. In addition to solving the water problems the design solution includes a new atrium canopy, and vertical enclosures that protect the building from weather and other natural elements. It also included investigative testing and analysis and a report outlining long term solutions .
