School of Social Work Renovation, Tulane University

Located in the former Elks Building, a neo-classical structure built in 1917, this 29,300 SF renovation was accomplished in two phases, redesigning four of the five floors within to offer students a variety of study, classroom and meeting spaces to satisfy the School’s broad and diverse curriculum.

Specific amenities include a student lounge with custom, built-in window seating; a second smaller student lounge for quiet study, small reading and study rooms, multiple learning spaces outfitted with the latest audio and video technology—including one room with closed circuit electronics and broadcasting capabilities—a student kitchen, a faculty/staff lounge, conference room, student lockers and shower facilities; in addition to offices for faculty and staff, visiting and adjunct faculty and doctoral students.

The project has received LEED-Gold certification and was completed for a total cost of $3.8M.
