Overview

This renovation and addition transforms an existing two-storey structure into a prominent four-storey campus building, the top half of which houses the university’s new Law School. Prefabrication of the modular roof panels allowed for simultaneous site construction and roof fabrication. The roof panels were erected over a span of roughly six weeks. The structure’s undulating prefabricated wood roof panels were designed to symbolize the region’s nearby mountain ranges.
