Ud’s Oldest Dorm Wraps Up $10M Renovation

By Tristan Navera – Dayton Business Journal

The University of Dayton has completed a $10 million renovation on one of its large dorms far ahead of schedule.

Founders Hall, which houses 400 students in 212 rooms, has completed a renovation that has seen the building’s interior completely redone. While the facility was supposed to be completed over two summers, it is nearing completion 13 weeks after students moved out of the facility for the summer on May 3, said Chris Hammond, project manager for Danis Building Construction, the general contractor for the project.

“Students moved out that Friday and we had 30 contractors move in on Saturday,” Hammond said, “We hit the ground running in order to turn it over for when students move in.”

The five-story building, UD’s oldest dorm, was gutted to its structure as bathrooms and showers were refurbished, a new lobby and elevator tower were added, and rooms received new carpeting, heating and air conditioning, and interior furnishings.
Students will move into the building again on Aug. 16.
