Workers remove sections of roof on Umrath Hall July 7 and 8. Umrath Hall closed June 20 for a complete renovation of the interior of the building. Once the yearlong renovation is finished in May 2012, the building will feature a new roof and interior walls, floors and ceiling finishes, along with new HVAC, fire protection and electrical systems, among other improvements. The building, which is is being renovated to meet LEED Silver certification standards, is scheduled to be reopened in June 2012 and will be ADA-accessible with the installation of two elevators. Umrath Hall is located on the university’s Danforth Campus, between Graham Chapel and the Danforth University Center.
