Graycor Construction Company was the contractor for the renovation of the Thunderbird Barton Kyle Yount Technology Center. The existing facility was expanded and now includes over 17,000 SF lecture halls, research rooms and faculty office space. The facility is equipped with the latest technology and capable of conducting collaborative classes, lectures, and international forums with students all around the globe.
This project was completed in a live environment. The project required continual coordination with the college staff and security staff ensured public safety, site security and work progress while keeping the interruption to the college’s activities to a minimum. The nearly 17,000 square-foot project required site excavation with follow-up landscaping to accommodate the large amphitheater style lecture hall addition and demolition of existing offices with portions of the existing structure. The office areas were newly configured to house office staff, a number of research rooms that included technology and aides for the students to use on research projects in the field of global management, as well as the new high tech lecture hall.
