Virginia State University – Hunter McDaniel Hall Expansion & Renovation

Scope of this project includes the renovation and expansion of Hunter McDaniel Hall to convert the building into needed instructional space to support the University’s growth, vision and campus master plan. Convergent Technologies is providing complete design services for audiovisual systems, and telecommunications cabling systems with associated supporting infrastructure. Building improvements include reorganizing interior spaces for more efficient operation of several departments. Spaces to receive educational technology systems include: Mathematics Classrooms, Mathematics Distance Learning Room, Nursing Simulator Skills Lab, Medical Surgery Skills Lab, Nursing Teaching Classroom, Pediatrics/Maternity Skills Lab, Psychology Computer Lab, Clinical Labs, Community Health, Social Psychology Rooms, Experimental Lab, Physics Labs, Organic and Biochemistry Teachings Labs, Conference Rooms, and a Library Video Conference Room. Overall project scope includes narrative systems overview descriptions and detailed per space cost estimating for all technology systems. In addition to several classrooms requiring appropriate designs for the purpose of distance learning, specified systems include standard classroom presentation systems, nursing/medical simulation systems, and a Technology Enhanced Active Learning classroom featuring multiple displays, an assisted listening system and annotation devices. Project challenges include the design of appropriate presentation systems for trapezoid and curved shaped classrooms, as well as rectangular shaped spaces. The project is scheduled to complete in August 2012.
