University of Vermont Votey Hall of Engineering

University of Vermont Votey Hall of Engineering

194,000 gsf new; 24,000 gsf renovations - $85,000,000 - 2019

The STEM complex is comprised of a new building and a partially renovated Votey Hall. The new building will be sited to the immediate east of Williams Hall and Old Mill/Lafayette Hall. The Cook Physical Sciences Building and Angell Lecture Center – both unable to accommodate contemporary teaching and research requirements – will be demolished sequentially to make way for the new buildings.

 

Comprised of two parallel and connected wings, the new STEM building will provide research and teaching laboratories in the west-facing wing, and classrooms, lecture halls, offices, and administrative spaces in the east-facing wing. A glass link connects the two wings, and provides space for a student commons and shared workshop spaces.

 

Physically and programmatically integrated with the new building, Votey Hall will be selectively renovated to upgrade engineering teaching labs, research labs, and classrooms, as well as replacing the existing south façade egress stairway with a new code compliant stairway and entry vestibule.. A new bridge will connect Votey’s third floor with the second floor of the lab wing. In this way, Votey and the new building will form an integrated STEM complex that integrates a variety of scientific and engineering disciplines in one central campus location.
