Blair Hall

Eastern Illinois University

In early 2004, the building was damaged by fire and lost its roof and third floor.  This renovation and restoration project is designed to adaptively reuse the entire 30,000 square feet and more efficiently use the spaces for five Departmental offices and a number classroom functions.

The aggressive design and construction schedules were met due to full cooperation of the University staff, Using Agencies, A/E and Contractors which allowed the University to occupy the building for the Spring 2006 semester.

Though one of the oldest buildings on Campus, Blair Hall now represents energy efficiency and technological advancements in building design and function.

This project was completed while Rod Reid was a partner with Severns Reid/RATIO.
