Truman State University, in Kirksville, Missouri, has awarded a $15.7 million contract to K&S to renovate Ryle Residence Hall. The co-ed dorm houses nearly 600 students in suite-style rooms, and features student lounges, cafeteria, and computer lab.
The project scope consists of an interior architectural and mechanical renovation, and exterior work to include new underground mechanical and electrical systems, as well as numerous site improvements. Both sides of the student dining area are being expanded, and the roof will be utilized as an outdoor patio area.
The north wing and main lounge will be closed and remodeled during the 2009-2010 academic year, reopening in August 2010. During the summer of 2010, the food service area will be remodeled. The final phase will entail closing the south wing during the 2010-2011 academic year, with completion by August 2011.
