The 42,100 gross square feet (GSF) Holden Hall was constructed in 1940 and currently houses the Mining and Minerals Engineering Program and the Materials Science and Engineering Program. In addition to a small basement, the existing building comprises a three story south wing totaling approximately 20,166 GSF and east and north single story wings totaling approximately 21,648 GSF.

This project will renovate the building’s  three story south wing. New construction will include the demolition of the  single story east and north wings, the replacement of the north wing with a new four story wing, and the replacement of the east wing with a new three story wing. Each replacement wing will match the footprint of the existing single story wings. These replacement wings will total approximately 86,600 GSF. The overall building will total 102,000 GSF of new and renovated space upon completion of the project.
