Enclosing the uncovered courtyard has significantly transformed how faculty and students experience and utilize the Anheuser-Busch Law Building. The domed canopy was installed in two parts at the existing 5th floor slab above the courtyard, a high-risk double hoist requiring one of the largest cranes in the Midwest.
Tarlton also renovated areas on Floors 2 to 5, including faculty/seminar areas and student commons, the multimedia and web services department, locker areas, food services, career services, admissions and registrar, offices and new glassed-in study areas.
To comply with academic calendar imperatives, the schedule addressed long lead times for manufacturing steel and constructing the massive canopy. Excessively noisy construction was performed during break times, and all work was completed in time for the new academic year.
