Alumni House Porch Modification
WIU Project Manager Ted N. Renner
Project Scope Modifications to the original Alumni House porch including limestone accents and creating an organic-shaped exterior plaza
External Vendors Laverdiere Construction and Cox Electric
Total Project Cost Approximately $230,000
Completion Date October 1, 2015
A generous donation from a Macomb native and her husband to honor her late parents' legacy at Western Illinois University made this project possible (wiu.edu/alumni/groundsrenovation.php). When completed, the original porch-level will extend to the north and to the east with overall L-shaped footprint and will be covered in limestone. New steps leading to a lower level flagstone patio will be installed and the two levels will be separation be limestone planter. Both levels will be ADA accessible via a curvilinear flagstone aisle allowing greater access to the Alumni House.
We hope to have the project done in time for Homecoming 2015.
The handrails have been installed and the project is now complete.
