UNC-Chapel Hill’s Old East/Old West

  • Scope: Renovation and roof replacement, PME upgrades
  • Total Project Cost: $5.7 million
  • Type of Project: Historical Renovation
  • Length of Project: 9 Months

UNC-Chapel Hill contracted Riley Contracting Group to renovate the exterior and interior of each building. The exterior project involved complete restoration of the masonry, including paint stripping, repointing, brick patch and replacement as well as a total roof replacement. To maintain the buildings’ historical condition, the masonry was coated with a lime wash, and each building’s stone sills were repaired or replaced. The total roof replacement involved a new standing seam copper, complimented with copper eves, cupolas, entries and water tables. The interior project involved the addition of new bathrooms, a fire alarm system, and mechanical and sprinkler systems.
