Champlain CollegePerry Hall Welcome Center
Project At A Glance
The new Student Welcome & Admission Center in Roger H. Perry Hall at Champlain College blends the old with the new into a state-of-the-art facility to serve prospective and current students. The $12 million project restored and expanded the circa 1859 brick home located in Burlington’s Historic Hill Section and is now home to admissions, financial aid, registration, student accounts and advising, and international studies. In the original 11,600 sf building, historic detail work, an open staircase and ground room floors were all preserved and restored.
The new 14,400 sf of additions consist of offices, restrooms, presentation and conference space and elevators. The facility incorporates energy efficient lighting and climate control systems, including a geothermal pump from Perry Hall’s deep water wells. The facility is looking to achieve Platinum LEED Certification, the highest level of certification from the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System. The project was designed by Goody Clancy of Boston, MA.
