Residential Hall Renovation

Benchmark partnered with Elizabethtown College to upgrade the existing Royer Hall dormitory in preparation for a significant increase in enrollment for the 2023/2024 Academic Year.

The project included demolition and replacement of outdated restroom/bathing facilities throughout the building. The project also included renovating and enhancing the building’s lobby, lounges, living rooms, study areas, and corridors. The existing dormitory rooms were upgraded with new finishes and lighting.

This fast-paced project required our team to procure and complete the project within the 5-month time frame to ensure completion so students could occupy the building by the start of the fall 2023 semester. Our team encountered several challenges including abatement of asbestos, structural work to open access to the expanded restroom/bathrooms, and completing the work in the required timeframe.
