Built in 1907, Neville Hall is one of Presbyterian College's oldest and most utilized academic buildings, located in the center of the college campus. Harper was tasked to complete the renovation and expansion of the building. The project included the restoration of the building’s historic rotunda, addition of a 120-seat auditorium, and increase to the overall number of classroom and office spaces, as well as the addressing of significant maintenance issues in the historic building.
Harper served as the Construction Manager At-Risk for the renovation and expansion of historic Neville Hall in the heart of the Presbyterian College campus. Built in 1907, Neville Hall is one of the most highly utilized academic buildings on campus and, as such, had significant deferred maintenance issues to address as part of this project. In addition, the college tasked us with overseeing the renovation of three stories of the landmark building. These renovations included the restoration of the building’s historic rotunda, addition of a 120-seat auditorium, and increase to the overall number of classroom and office spaces. In total, Harper completed a comprehensive renovation to Neville’s existing 24,683 SF and an addition of 15,574 SF.
As the Construction Manager At-Risk, Harper provided a wide array of program management covering every facet of the implementation process including architect and builder selection, design management, construction oversight, and successful delivery. This is the second project Harper has completed for Presbyterian College, following the renovation of Georgia Hall.
