Old Dominion University Village Bookstore
This design-build university bookstore project encompassed 44,000 square-feet with the bookstore retail space spanning the first and second floors. Offices for the bookstore operation, the University Development Department, and Real Estate Foundation are located on the third and fourth floors.
The design includes a 3-story oval-shaped curtain wall surrounding the main entrance, featuring revolving doors. The interior contains escalators, glass handrails and a 2-story atrium.
Construction took place on a tight urban site with only 20 feet surrounding all sides. The use of hydro-scaffolding in lieu of the typical scaffolding minimized the room required for accessibility.
