Villanova University – Bartley Hall – 2015
gBuild continued their work in 2015 to support Villanova University’s School of Business’ vision of bringing together the multiple study, student lounge, Clay center and office suites separated by masonry walls, opening up the area to give a sense of encompassing uniformity.
- Upgraded finishes included all new floor to ceiling glass walls, sliding telescopic glass wall system in the business school main conference room. Class room glass walls included double glazed wall panels with interior of panels laminated/coated with white to allow for use as whiteboards.
- The existing hollow metal/glass system in Lobby Main Stair Tower were removed and replaced with concealed, automatic sliding fire shutter door.
- Outlying classrooms, private studies, conference rooms and offices were brought into open-space flow with demolition of existing masonry walls and replaced with glass partitions. Finishes and other materials were also made more uniform to add to congruency.
