The 120,000-square-foot, three-story building is designed in an L-shaped configuration to create a strong presence along 67th and Pine streets. Kiewit Building Group Inc., a subsidiary of Kiewit Corporation, is constructing the $27 million project.
Mammel Hall is organized into four categories: administrative functions, faculty areas, classrooms and public spaces. The administrative and faculty areas serve as anchors at either end of the L-shaped structure. The team is using traditional brick, glass and limestone materials. In addition, a glass box curves along Pine Street, connecting both anchored ends with a three-story glass atrium. This connective “infill” is constructed of aluminum and glass to contrast strongly with the more materialized building corners, conveying a sense of the strong university tradition invested in administration and faculty, joining the promise of the future represented by the student body.
Building materials are chosen for their longevity and institutional quality. Brick, stone and wood are highlighted throughout the space, with glass and aluminum forming the connective tissue of the two wings.
