42,000 square feet of renovation
60,000 square feet of new construction

W. M. Jordan Company provided preconstruction and construction management services for the renovation and expansion of Virginia Tech’s Holden Hall.

The renovation and expansion of Holden Hall supports the Mining, Minerals and Materials Science Engineering programs.

This project also included the demolition of the pre-existing single-story east and north wings, a replacement of the north wing with a new four-story wing, and replacement of the east wing with a new three-story wing. The south wing was fully renovated.

Renovations included new laboratories and three new 50-seat classrooms. Holden Hall’s new wing features cutting-edge Center for Autonomous Mining and Robotics. The two-story space allows students and faculty to engage in autonomous mining and work with natural materials that are three-to-four feet deep.

The building also includes a new outdoor roof terrace for hosting small student and faculty groups. New offices and a new elevator are also included.

Holden Hall has been certified LEED Gold from the U. S. Green Building Council.
