MSSU Reynolds Hall Renovation


Joplin, MO

Brief Summary

Crossland Construction was selected to serve as the Design/Build team leader for the MSSU Reynolds Hall renovation.  With a contract value of $9.7 million, the university science building underwent an overhaul of the first and third floors.  The third floor renovation included the addition of a physics lecture room and lab space, a sloped lecture room, chemistry and advanced chemistry labs, an instrument lab, a geology lab, a balance room, office spaces, a lab prep storage space, and custom corridor display cases.  Careful coordination had to be taken for the new equipment installation while university classes were in session; the second floor ceiling space was used to accommodate the majority of the mechanical and plumbing work while the second floor classes were in full swing. 

The first floor renovation included a microbiology lecture and lab space, a biotech lab with a DNA tissue culture lab, a hoteling suite, a sloped lecture room, two biology lecture and lab spaces, and a biology laboratory prep and storage space.  This floor was occupied during the renovation.  Because the renovation took place while classes were in session, it was imperative that students still have access to the old equipment.  A new Air Handling Unit building was also added.  It is connected to the original structure of Reynolds Hall with matching brick to maximize the cohesive appearance. Crossland crews delivered both floors on time.
