CORONADO HALL RENOVATION

EASTERN NEW MEXICO UNIVERSITY - PORTALES, NM

McClain + Yu was selected to lead the team of designers in the renovation of this large dormitory building.  The renovation was charged with redesigning shared restroom & shower rooms. For this project - and for the first time at UNM - non gender-specific restrooms were required.  McClain + Yu pioneered the code approach to this in New Mexico.  Each of the 254 dormitory rooms are renovated.  Complete design of a new retrofit elevator and limited use/limited access lifts was included to make the 1950s building completely accessible.
