Project Manager, Chris Gnau, rings the bell today as J. Vinton Schafer Construction, LLC is awarded the Cole Head House/Culture Center Renovation project at the University of Maryland, College Park. Many features of the facility are original to the building (dated 1956) and the equipment serving the spaces was replaced over the years. This project will assess and update the building systems that serve the Head House to provide a more comprehensive, code-compliant, and efficient set of systems. The project renovations will also improve the ADA accessibility of the building.
The renovations to the Cultural Center will provide space to support five new cultural centers. This project fits into the broader campus initiative to allows every campus community member to feel welcomed and experience a sense of belonging at the University of Maryland.
