[+] EASTERN MICHIGAN UNIVERSITY FIRST-YEAR CENTER COMPLEX FACADE ENHANCEMENT & RENOVATION
LOCATION: YPSILANTI, MI
The Eastern Michigan University First Year Center Complex (the Center) was built in the 1960’s and was designed specifically for new freshmen and transfer students. The Center contains four dormitory complexes: Phelps, Putnam, Sellers and Walters Halls.
In order to provide a positive experience for the students’ first year and assist in recruitment of new students, it is crucial that the Center works both functionally and aesthetically. The replacement of the fenestration systems and entrance canopies provide opportunities to enhance complex in aesthetics, energy efficiency, and site design.
