The new student center at University of Connecticut’s Avery Point Campus is a hub for student activity.  The project team capitalized on the combination of renovated spaces and a new addition, unique geometry, and variety of building materials to embrace the campus’s interesting history still visible in many of the nearby campus buildings.  SGH was the engineer of record for the structural design and assisted with the design of the building enclosure.
