The Krill Company, the contractor that managed the Murphy Hall project, was honored in the renovation category at the Build Ohio Awards ceremony in Columbus on Nov. 14. The Murphy Hall renovation completely re-designed the space to provide multiple living options for students, including triple and quad suites, singles, and larger double rooms. It also created more study and social gathering space for students, and allowed for more private bathroom facilities. Murphy Hall also will be the University’s first LEED-certified building, pending final approval from the U.S. Green Building Council. LEED, or Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design, is a green building certification program that recognizes best-in-class building strategies and practices. Murphy Hall is expected to qualify for LEED Silver certification. Visit the Murphy Hall renovation website
