Wheeler Hall Renovation and Addition

Location: Towson, Maryland Client: Loyola Blakefield

A stone-faced school classroom building from the 1930s received a complete interior renovation and a 7,000 sf addition designed by Rubeling & Associates, a JMT Division.

Rubeling & Associates, a JMT Division, designed the complete renovation and addition to Wheeler Hall, the upper school classroom building on the Loyola Blakefield campus.  Wheeler Hall is the oldest building at the school, dating back to the early 1930s, and is considered Loyola's flagship academic building.  It houses the school library, the Science Department, Modern and Classical Languages and the English Department.

The design was aligned with our master plan previously approved by the school.  Renovation of the four-level, 46,228-square-foot building included: 

  • systemic upgrades to sprinklers
  • HVAC system
  • security and communications
  • boiler room
  • life safety
  • lighting
  • general power 

Upgrades to the building included window replacement, drywall demolition and reinstallation, new ceilings and lighting, "telescoping" seating in the commons hall, and general spatial and improvements to all classrooms, restrooms, and library. 

The addition is a three-story, 7,000-square-foot structure with stairwell, elevator, and two conference rooms on two levels.  The entire building and addition was also designed with "smart classroom" technology.
