University of Hartford

Arts and Technology Center

SLAM provided design-build services for a 16,800 SF addition and 2,800 SF renovation to the existing arts building complex on the University of Hartford campus. The SLAM team worked collaboratively with the University to develop an efficient program of design and construction that utilized existing spaces, defined circulation patterns and integrated the curriculum within the proposed budget.

The placement and exterior design of the new addition also provided an opportunity to enhance and update the image of the art school. SLAM’s design-build team successfully completed this project on-time and on-budget. Furthermore, this project involved no RFI’s, change orders or over-runs, 2% savings was returned back to the Owner and the newly designed building ultimately increased the art school’s retention rate from 3:10 to 7:10.
