Building for the Next Generation

Our Projects

University of Minnesota, Folwell Hall

Historical Restoration

Project Description

Approximately 136,000 SF interior renovation of Folwell Hall, one of the most historic buildings on the University of Minnesota Twin Cities campus. The interior renovation restored the historic integrity of the building by preserving the old first-level spaces and by installing new energy-efficient windows that replicated the original wood windows. Classrooms and offices were modernized and code and access deficiencies were corrected. New plumbing, HVAC, and electrical, data and telecommunications systems were also implemented. In addition to the interior renovation, McGough added two stairwells and two new elevators and replaced the exterior windows.
