Savery Hall Renovation
The University of Washington is actively planning for the complete renovation and restoration of Savery Hall. The planned project scope will address structural, seismic, life safety, and accessibility and other code deficiencies and will ensure the long-term preservation of this 85-year old campus building on the historic Liberal Arts Quadrangle. Building occupants (the Departments of Economics, Philosophy, and Sociology and the Center for Social Science Computation and Research) are currently scheduled to be relocated to surge space in the fall of 2007 when Savery Hall will be closed for the duration of the construction. Building occupants are currently scheduled to reoccupy the restored Savery Hall in August/September 2009.
Upon reopening, approximately 14,600 assignable square feet of space in the restored Savery Hall will be dedicated to general assignment classrooms. The new classrooms will meet current standards for modern technology-enhanced learning spaces. Planned classrooms include four seminar rooms (ranging in size from 10 to 25 seats), nine small-size classrooms (ranging in size from 25 to 30 seats), five medium-size classrooms (ranging in size from 35 to 40 seats), and an 80-seat auditorium and a 200-seat auditorium.
