TTU To Start Renovation On Henderson Hall

Tennessee Tech's Henderson Hall, home of the College of Arts and Sciences and many of its departments, including English and History, will undergo major renovations this summer and into the fall. Officials say the project will cause classes that normally meet in the building to be scheduled elsewhere on campus for the summer and fall semesters. The building was initially constructed in 1931, and the renovation project includes replacing the roof, replacing the heating/air conditioning fan coil units throughout the building, installing a sprinkler system throughout the building, and upgrading the electrical system in the building. There will be some periods during the summer when the entire building will have to be closed for the electrical work. Tech says the renovations will begin in early June and will be completed during the fall semester, hopefully by Thanksgiving. Classrooms will not be available in Henderson Hall during the summer or fall semesters. Classes that would normally meet in Henderson Hall are being scheduled elsewhere for these semesters.
