Summer Renovations Improve the Delaware Campus
Web Editor - Published: July 11, 2011
Summer 2011 has seen a number of substantial improvements to the physical plant of the Delaware campus with more changes on the way. Construction projects include the Mail Room and Crown Court snack bar in the Main Law Building, improvements to Polishook Hall and the Concord Hall dormitory, and the relocation of the tennis and basketball courts to create additional parking closer to the main law building.

The new, recently completed Mail Room stands in the area once occupied by the Crown Court snack bar and the area behind it that was formerly room 121. With the new Mail Room up and running, the next stage of the renovations will see a new Crown Court built in the much larger area where the Mail Room formerly stood.

The all-new Crown Court will offer an expanded dining experience including additional menu offerings. The new location will also feature a greatly expanded seating area for students, faculty, and staff to enjoy.

Following last summer’s extensive renovations of Polishook Hall, a second phase of work has commenced on the building that will see new exterior paint and the replacement of all windows and glass entryways with energy-efficient windows and doors.

Rooms in the Concord Hall dormitory will see all carpeting replaced with tile, and energy-efficient windows and doors will be installed throughout the building. The exterior of the building will also be repainted.

Coming weeks will see the relocation of the tennis and basketball courts from the center of campus to an area behind Shipley Hall near the rugby field. After the athletic courts are moved, the area will be excavated, refilled and then paved to create additional parking spaces closer to the Main Law Building.

Ongoing efforts to improve the campus will provide a more welcoming environment for everyone as the 2011-12 academic year approaches.
