RICHARD BLAND COLLEGE ERNST HALL
Selected by Virginia Living Magazine as one of Virginia’s top schools in the
Capital Improvements category (2017)
Ernst Hall was an existing two-story steel framed brick, CMU, and precast concrete building on the southwest corner of the Richard Bland College Campus. This project provides flexible student learning spaces to include classrooms, seminar spaces, and study collaboration spaces, faculty and administrative office space. The auditorium was renovated which supports presentations, performances, and small productions. The three-building entrances were modified to increase accessibility. An entrance canopy, vestibule, and a new elevator and shaft were provided at the North Entrance. The South Entrance received a new canopy, entrance steps, ramps, and storefront. New steps, ramp, and entrance vestibule were provided at the West Entrance. New Low-E windows with light shelving and sun shading were incorporated throughout the building.
