Walsh College

Troy Building Renovation

 

The Troy Campus building renovation is a $15 million project that will enhance the College’s original campus building on Livernois Road, improving the student learning experience and strengthening chances for business-student success in the global marketplace.

The project includes a two-story, 27,000 square-foot addition to Walsh’s original campus building, built in the 1970s, and a 28,000 square-foot renovation to existing interior spaces. The addition will encompass distinct pavilions with a business-communication focused Student Success Center, a student lounge, and a welcome center.

Construction started in fall 2014 and is expected to take 18 months to complete.  Architecture and design will be completed by Valerio Dewalt Train Associates (VDTA).  Donor-naming opportunities for the project are available.  View the camera for current video of the construction activity.
