Institutional | DONLEY’S LLC – BAVARO HALL AT THE UNIVERSITY OF VIRGINIA New School of Thought BAVARO HALL WILL HOUSE THE CURRY SCHOOL OF EDUCATION AT THE UNIVERSITY OF VIRGINIA. fter spending most of four decades in a building that was outdated even in the 1970s, the University of Virginia’s Curry School of Education soon will set up shop in one of the newest buildings on the Charlottesville, Va., campus. General contractor Donley’s LLC is more than halfway done with Bavaro Hall, a $37.4 million building that will be the new home of the Curry School of Education when completed in 2010. Robert A.M. Stern Architects says the new 65,000-square-foot structure will double the school’s current space. The site is on the western end of the university’s historic Central Grounds, and Bavaro Hall features simple massing and traditional detailing. These features include red brick and cast stone facades with painted wood trim, six-over-six doublehung windows and a zinc roof. “The new building works together with the old to define a central landscaped courtyard framed between two open-air colonnades linking the two buildings, creating a campus within a campus for the Curry School,” Robert A.M. Stern Architects says. “Bavaro Hall’s ground floor, partially tucked into the slope, houses the clinics that distinguish the school, with a public entrance at grade to the north of Emmet Street. Primary access for students and faculty is one level above, via an existing pedestrian bridge that crosses Emmet street and new cascading steps that lead from the street up to the courtyard at either end of the building.” in 2010, be 65,000-square-foot home »When completedVirginia inBavaro Hall will Va.the new will sit on the western endofofthe Curry School of Education at the University of Charlottesville, The hall the campus’ Central Grounds. New Beginning According to the University of Virginia, Bavaro Hall will offer an immediately visible and dramatic improvement in the ability of Curry faculty members to interact and collaborate on projects and with students. Currently, faculty members and students are scattered in numerous locations. “Bavaro Hall will provide Curry School facul- ty, staff, students and collaborators with a workspace that is not only beautiful and comfortable, but also conducive to being creative and innovative,” Robert C. Pianta, dean of the school, said in a statement. “I have no doubt this space will enable the Curry School of Education to become more well-known nationally and internationally for work that matters for children, for teachers and for other communities. We are looking forward to hav- ing a building that befits our ambitions.” After starting construction in May 2008, the university says the project is more than 75 percent complete as of the end of November. The exterior brick veneer construction and window installation will continue in preparation for echo stone installation, according to University of Virginia. Interior rough-ins, framing and drywall are mostly complete through the second floor and CONSTRUCTION-TODAY.COM JANUARY 2010
