Old Dominion University Village Bookstore
The Design-Build project is 44,000 square-feet and contains a cafe on the first floor with the bookstore retail space on floors 1 and 2. Offices for the bookstore operation, the University Development Department and Real Estate Foundation are located on the 3rd and 4th floors.
The design includes a 3-story oval-shaped curtain wall surrounding the main entrance, featuring revolving doors. The interior contains escalators, glass handrails and a 2-story atrium.
Construction took place on a tight urban site with only 20 feet surrounding all sides. The use of hydro-scaffolding in lieu of the typical scaffolding minimized the room required for accessibility.
