Dillard University - Alexander Library

Dillard University - Alexander Library

Once again, Woodward Design+Build was the contractor of choice for Dillard University. The existing Lawless Library was completely renovated and reconfigured to meet the demands of both the student body and faculty of Dillard University. Some of these features included state-of-the-art lighting, exterior tree lighting, a new glass stair enclosure, replacement of a window wall on the building enclosure, multiple new computer stations in the Learning Commons, installation of a new book detection system and installation of a new “i ceiling system.” The facility’s reworked HVAC system required a rework of the first floor ceiling and a relocation/reconfiguration of the mechanical and elevator equipment in the penthouse.

Woodward’s extensive experience at Dillard University, combined with our expertise in historic renovation, has once again allowed for a modern facility to coexist with the historic architecture of the campus.

Other projects at Dillard University include the Professional Schools Building, the International Center for Economic Freedom, Stern Hall, Lawless Chapel and fast track restoration work following Hurricane Katrina.
