Wight was the design-builder for a renovation project of an interior gymnasium space located in De LaSalle Hall on the Lewis University campus. The renovation project inserted a new floor plate within the existing gym space to create another floor level for offices and classrooms on the lower first floor. The project also included a new elevator and stair tower and the extension of an existing stair tower for the purposes of meeting code egress requirements.
Mother Theresa Residence Hall
Increased student enrollment and a desire to provide more on-campus housing has prompted Lewis University to develop a plan for a neighborhood of residence halls. Wight was the design-build builder for the housing development. Mother Teresa Hall is home to approximately 90 students and also houses the University’s Office of Health and Counseling Services.
Pope John Paul II Residence Hall
The first residence hall was completed in July 2005. Wight provided design-build services for the residence hall. This three-story plus basement building will be home to approximately 90 students. The entire planned development houses 500 - 600 students.
