University of Georgia – Myers Hall: Athens, GA

This project consisted of a renovation and addition to a 400-bed, 127,305 square foot historic residential hall (originally built in 1953) on the University of Georgia’s campus. The project altered the room configuration from the traditional two-bed dorm room to multiple room configuration which included a mix of traditional rooms and newer room suites that hold eight to ten beds each. The addition to the existing building included a renovation to the existing lobby area, a new activities hall with TV rooms, conference facilities, and multi-purpose space for lectures, games, etc.

Located within the historic Myers Quadrangle alongside a ring of 100 year old red oak trees, the project lay in the direct path between several other residence halls and classrooms, and allowed for very limited site access. Additionally, the extremely aggressive schedule of 12 months added to the challenges of construction on a college campus. Hogan turned the project over to the school in several phases as work was completed which allowed the University to install furniture and complete work.

Hogan Construction Group was awarded the 2004 Best in Construction Award for the Design-Bid-Build Renovation Category, $20 million to $50 million General Contractor.

Client Quote:

“Hogan and members of their team have met or exceeded all of my expectations for performance on this project. The quality of work delivered on this project is excellent and the Hogan crew established and maintained that standard from the outset. Paul Hogan and his people have been instrumental in solving problems and keeping the project on schedule. I am pleased to offer this recommendation for Hogan in light of that company’s outstanding performance as the general contractor for the renovation of Myers Hall. “
