  New College Residence Hall Selects BurkeMercer RubberMyte® To Stand The Test Of Time
Tennessee Technological University in Cookeville, Tennessee waited a long time for a new state-of-the-art residence hall for their students. The wait is now about over with project completion in sight.

The new residence hall complements the University’s existing Georgian-style architecture with details as Palladian-style windows, eyebrow dormer and double stack “faux chimneys”.The Tennessee Board of Regents selected the Joint Venture Team of Maffett- Stamps pllc (Cookeville, Tenn.)/Bernard L. Weinstein & Associates (Nashville, Tenn.) for the $13 million project. The joint venture team provided programming, architectural-engineering design, interiors, landscape design, and construction administration for the project.

The project will be completed in January 2004. The 92,680-square-foot residence hall project will feature double occupancy rooms with private baths, a multi-media room, a spacious grand lobby, three small study rooms, a large group study room, two social lounges, two elevators, life safety features and will comply with the American Disabilities Act.

RubberMyte® wall base by BurkeMercer Industries was selected by the design team for its toughness, as well as its good looks, and the ability to stand the test of time in an active student environment.
