Constructed in 1895, Denny Hall is the oldest building on the Seattle campus and is eligible to be listed in the Washington State Heritage Register.  Denny Hall was prioritized as part of the University’s “Restore the Core” renovation program to restore and modernize buildings in greatest need of renovation.  The last major structural and interior renovation of this 100-year-old building occurred in 1956-57. The slate roof was replaced and the cupola was restored in 2005.
The 86,414 gross square foot building will continue to house offices and programs for the College of Arts and Sciences, including the Departments of Anthropology, Classics, Germanics, and Near Eastern Languages & Civilization, as well as the College’s Language Learning Center.  Denny will also house 12,000 square feet of general assignment classrooms totaling 765 seats. This project will upgrade all major building systems, correct seismic deficiencies, improve accessibility, and abate hazardous materials.  In accordance with the requirements of the State of Washington, the project will be designed to achieve Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver certification. Hacker (previously known as THA) of Portland, Oregon, is the project architect.  SiteWorkshop is the landscape architect, and BNBuilders (BNB) is the General Contractor/Construction Manager (GC/CM).  Both are located in Seattle, Washington.
