The reconstruction of the entrance to Union Hall is complete. This was one of the final pieces of the multi-year renovation of the building. Construction of Union Hall was completed 45 years ago – in 1975.

Work began on the $1.3 million entrance project last November. The changes include a ramp that is ADA approved, an upper patio, and an exterior sign for Union Cafe. Patio furniture and umbrellas were recently added. In addition, new wireless access points and USB charging exterior outlets have been installed. And circuits have been added that can be utilized for outdoor events such as Spring Fling and Taste the Future.

Da Nite Sign company produced the Union Cafe sign. “That’s the same contractor that performed refurbishing on all of the updated signage across campus,” said Eric McMillon, project manager for Facilities Planning Design & Construction. “The font for the sign matches the same branding we did for the Union Cafe project two years ago. And the color for the blue signage board matches our branding standards.”
