Eisenhower House Admissions Building, Gettysburg College
SG provided interior architecture and construction administration services to Gettysburg College for the 4,000 SF interior renovation of the first and second floors of Admissions Building of Gettysburg College, Eisenhower House, which once served as the post-presidency executive offices for Dwight D. Eisenhower, 34th president of the United States. It has been said that, upon his retirement, Eisenhower penned some of his memoirs at this location.
The renovation includes new paint, flooring, casework, ceiling interior finishes and furniture for the offices and waiting areas of the building. This is a very high profile building used for recruiting and student admission interviews. The facility exemplifies the excellence of the college and creates a strong first impression to incoming students and families visiting the campus.
Renovations were strategically phased and coordinated with the college facilities staff to allow the facility to remain occupied and functional during construction. To minimize disruption, construction took place under a very tight timeline during winter break.
