The University of Texas at Austin, Sanchez Building, Public Area Renovations
The University of Texas at Austin
McKinney York Architects
This high-profile, donor-funded project included the renovation of public areas on the first and second floor of the George Sanchez Building at The University of Texas at Austin campus. It was executed with a fast-track, four-phased summer schedule that allowed completion prior to the start of the fall semester.
The renovation was completed to create open student work areas. Construction scope included abatement, demolition, interior finish carpentry, glass entrances and storefront, along with MEP improvements. The lobby included a faceted wall system with angled walls to display plaques as well as a specialty engineered wood cloud ceiling with integrated lighting.
As is common with work at The University of Texas at Austin Campus, the building remained occupied during the entire construction schedule.
