Guthridge to undergo renovations this summer

The University will replace two elevators and upgrade fire alarms and sprinklers in Guthridge Hall this summer.

Additional upgrades to the sophomore residence hall may also take place as the project progresses, University spokeswoman Michelle Sherrard said, adding that the scope of other possible renovations has not been identified.

Sherrard said a cost estimate for the upgrades is not yet available.

The residence hall will remain vacant during renovations, and work will be complete before the fall semester begins.

Upgrades will be similar to recent work in JBKO residence hall, Sherrard said.

The Hatchet reported in September 2009 that renovations to elevators, fire alarms, sprinklers, kitchens and bathrooms in JBKO cost an estimated $2.65 million.
