Lake Huron Hall Renovation | Allendale, MI

Lake Huron Hall, one of the original buildings on the GVSU Allendale Campus, was renovated by Pioneer with new offices and classrooms and redesigned study spaces. The preservation of the building was essential to maintain historical value and continued use of the building. 

“The remodel is beautiful — full of light and color, which energizes and motivates, and with spaces for quiet reflection as well as active collaboration,” said Kathryn Remlinger, professor of English, who has had an office in LHH for most of her 25 years at GVSU.  

The building is now ADA compliant with a new fire protection system, HVAC system, ductwork and piping, and building controls. A new membrane roof was installed. The older exterior balconies were converted into interior study spaces. The building is seeking LEED certification.

“The current remodel preserves the historic exterior of the building but has completely reconfigured the interior, creating new spaces that support creative approaches to learning,” said Melissa Morison, associate professor and chair of the Classics Department.
