Inlow Hall Renovation, Eastern Oregon University

Inlow Hall is the original building on the Eastern Oregon University campus. It originally housed all functions of the school, but over time became the Administration Building for the University. The project incorporated multiple funding sources, including money from the State Energy Loan Program. Although the project was designed as a single, simultaneous effort, it is essentially three combined projects. Project components include a voluntary seismic upgrade and lateral resistance bracing, an energy performance upgrade including equipment and envelope improvements, and an interior renovation of the historic building with an emphasis on improving the student experience for the Enrollment Management services housed within the building.

Early analysis of the building’s opportunities and constraints have resulted in a Renovation Master Plan. Phase One of the renovation focuses on the first floor; subsequent phases are pending funding. Phase One of the project was certified LEED CI Gold in June 2011.
