The Ohio State University (OSU) wanted to renovate and upgrade five existing, high-rise residence halls. OSU had not significantly upgraded Park, Seibert, Smith, Steeb, and Stradley residence halls since construction in the 1950s. The project included renovations of all rooms with the addition of new public spaces and two building additions that connect Stradley to Park and Smith to Steeb. SGH worked with the architecture team of Sasaki Associates and Schooley Caldwell Associates on the building enclosure design for the new residence halls.
