W. M. Jordan Company is providing preconstruction and construction management services for the renovation and expansion of Virginia Tech’s Holden Hall.

The renovation and expansion of Holden Hall will support the Mining, Minerals and Materials Science Engineering programs.

This project also includes the demolition of the pre-existing single-story east and north wings, a replacement of the north wing with a new four-story wing, and replacement of the east wing with a new three-story wing. The south wing will be fully renovated.

Renovations include new laboratories and three new 50-seat classrooms. Holden Hall’s new wing will be the cutting-edge Center for Autonomous Mining and Robotics. The two-story space allows students and faculty to engage in autonomous mining and work with natural materials that are three-to-four feet deep.

The building will also include a new outdoor roof terrace for hosting small student and faculty groups. New offices and a new elevator will also be included.
