Hoyt Science Hall Renovation and Addition

01 Challenge

BHDP was engaged by Westminster College to conduct a building master plan and design and implement phased renovations to Hoyt Hall—a building that houses the College’s flagship Science programs. With a goal of enhancing the student experience, providing modern learning environments, and creating inspirational public spaces, the multiple phases focused on improvements to the main entry, central atrium, classrooms, labs, and study lounges, as well as the construction of a new three-story addition.

02 Solution

The renovations created new student study and collaboration areas as well as developed the building wayfinding system, and it has immediately resulted in increased activity in the building. The total renovation and expansion of the Hoyt Science Center, expected to be complete in 2021, will offer state-of-the-art facilities for teaching and research and enable Westminster’s faculty to continue offering a high-quality education.
