Project Description:
The project involved designing handicapped accessibility for the Housing and Resident Life Office located in Ragsdale-Mendenhall Residence Hall which was constructed in 1948. New ramps and stairs were constructed to provide accessibility from the street level to the level of the existing courtyard and to the level of the existing first floor of the Housing and Resident Life Office.
New seating areas were provided at the streetscape and in the courtyard. New lighting was also added to provide general illumination of the ramps stairs and seating areas. New landscaping was installed to enhance the existing courtyard space.
To provide accessibility to the existing front entrance of the building, the existing stone column and pediment entrance canopy was renovated. The existing stone landing was raised to the level of the first floor and the stone stairs, columns and pilasters were altered to accommodate the changes in elevation. New decorative metal railings were provided to match the existing railings and existing railings were refurbished as necessary.
