Peabody Hall
 
 
University of Arkansas selected East Harding Construction for the renovation of the historic 1913 Peabody Hall. Project work included the restoration of the exterior of the building, including the removal of several layers of paint and new windows and doors that replicate the original appearance of the building.
 
The interior was renovated to provide modern academic and office space to accommodate needs of the College of Education and Health Professions including: six general purpose classrooms, a computer lab, a technology education lab, and a seminar room; 43 faculty offices and departmental administrative offices; and a café. The previously dirt-floored basement was converted to a lobby and loading/unloading area. Building systems, such as HVAC, AV/IT, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection were also updated to modern standards. A new elevator makes the building completely accessible. State-of-the-art teaching equipment was added and all mechanical/plumbing systems were replaced. To maintain the high ceilings, a chilled beam mechanical system was incorporated, reducing the need for in-ceiling duct work.
 
Key historic interior components, such as the original pine flooring and stamped metal ceiling tiles, were salvaged and reused in the building.

Yocum Residential Hall-Phase I

 

 

In 2011, East Harding was selected as construction manager to renovate Yocum Hall. Due to the University’s growth in enrollment, Yocum Hall could not be vacated, even partially, during the traditional school year. So, East Harding was challenged to renovate Yocum Hall during the summer months only and over a period of up to five years.

 

Phase I, involving both residence halls, was completed on schedule and within budget during Summer 2012. Phase I Yocum Hall was the $2.8 million installation of new make-up fresh air units and upgrades to the mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) infrastructure for the 531 bed residence hall. The project included electrical upgrades, new fire sprinkler pump, new vertical “standpipe” risers in stairwells. Phase I readied the Hall for Phase II.
