The new Riddick Hall provides modernized teaching and open laboratory space for North Carolina State University’s Departments of Physics and Animal Science. The phased renovation and expansion project called for an extensive scope of work, including gutting the interior of the main building, asbestos abatement, and interior fit-up. It also included remodeling the main building’s façade, reroofing the main structure, connecting existing underground utilities, and improving pedestrian access points. Renovations impacted approximately 108,000 sf of the facility. Existing annex buildings were demolished to make room for a 12,000 sf expansion to the facility. The project also provided for a large reading room and mechanical support areas for the existing facility.
