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 September 2015

Some of the construction layers have been peeled back, including the temporary construction hallway walls!  The Frankel lobby and restrooms are scheduled to reopen shortly.  Installation of a new media wall with nine television screens is underway.  Glass windows have all been installed on the outer perimeter of the new addition.  Some of the exterior material, such as brick, has been installed.  The transformation is real and continues to happen on campus. 

Plus, it means the student service space is getting that much closer to completion!  Seeing a limited number of my department colleagues on a daily basis over a year and my inability to bond with my new team members has been difficult.  Honestly I can't wait until everyone is back together in one cohesive space.  It will be nice and refreshing.
