Marsh Hall Renovation
Concord University commissioned Silling Associates to complete exterior renovations to the administration building, Marsh Hall. The renovations were funded from a portion of the $5.6 million East Bond Funding provided by The Higher Education Policy Commission. Work in the first bid package included a new EPDM Roof and replacement of deteriorated stone copings. Repairs were also completed for the iconic bell carillon along with selected masonry work. All eight columns on the bell carillon were replaced and the new columns were covered with an exterior insulation finish system (EIFS). Masonry work included selected repointing and reattachment of limestone trim around the front windows.
Work in the next bid package included demolition of the front entrance porches and steps on both Marsh Hall and Science Hall. After demolition the entrances will receive new porches, steps, and handrails. The porches and steps will be relaid with a base field of Indiana limestone with bluestone and brick accents. New aluminum handrails will be installed which recall details from the bell carillon.
