Spalding Hall During 2017 Renovation

Spalding Hall Upgrade DPW Project #16-151

Spalding Hall was built in 1924 to serve as dormitory for women.  In 1930 it became the men's dormitory, and later in the same decade, the headquarters for the Lewiston Civilian Conservation Corps.  By 1966 is was the residence hall for married students before the building closed in 1950. In 1966 the first floor was converted into faculty offices as it eventually did on the second and third floors.  The last remodel was in 1977 when localized repairs were necessary after a fire in the basement.  This new project will upgrade classroom, conference, and office spaces, including energy efficient windows and doors, improved lighting, flooring repairs, re-carpeting, HVAC and electrical improvements. Clark Hall, a student residence, is part of the project because it is attached to Spalding Hall (SPH) by one wing.  As such, a new fire suppression system, boiler and windows are being installed in portions of Clark Hall.  All upgrades are slated for completion July 2018.
