EAST CAROLINA UNIVERSITY
TYLER RESIDENCE HALL - RENOVATION

GREENVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA

The 241-bed dormitory, built in 1969, is a 9-story high rise building. The project scope included asbestos abatement, installation of an automatic sprinkler system, and accessibility improvements, two new steam-fired instantaneous domestic water heaters, updates and additions to the existing fire alarm system to meet high rise and accessibility code requirements, and modifications to the existing make-up air and exhaust air systems to accommodate the new group toilets.

The interior renovation included a complete demolition and renovation of the existing bathrooms without reducing the fixture count or increasing the square footage of the bathrooms.  The sleeping rooms were renovated to provide an attractive and flexible living space.  Bright paint, laminated wood floors, accent wall tile, and plush carpet compete well with off-campus living options.

The entire building was wrapped in a new thermal envelope that complements the character of ECU’s contemporary buildings.
