Walsh College

Troy Building Renovation

 

*Please note the exit drive of the Troy campus will be closed on Tuesday, May 19 and Wednesday, May 20.  Please exit with caution through the entry drive, which will have 2 way traffic.*

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. 


Progress Update as of May 2015

The Troy campus renovation keeps moving along. We are excited about what the future holds! Concrete is being poured and projects to the existing space are progressing forward. In addition to rooms 114-115, the Mother's Room and Testing Center are also now complete.  Continue reading to learn more about the updates made.

P.S. Check back next month to find out details about the Frankel Lobby and rooms 111-113 renovations. During this next phase of the renovation, access points will change. Also, the Business Office, receptionist desk, and evening administrator desk will be temporarily relocated. Details will be included in the June update.
