The Lawyers’ Club Building and John P. Cook Building Renovation

Overview

The Law School proposes a comprehensive renovation of The Charles T. Munger Residences in the Lawyers’ Club and the John P. Cook Building, and updating key infrastructure in the club wing of The Lawyers’ Club Building. The renovation of the dormitory areas, approximately 92,000 gross square feet of space, will address infrastructure needs including new plumbing, heating, ventilation, fire detection and suppression systems, wired and wireless high-speed network access, and accessibility improvements. Although air conditioning will be added, we will target overall energy performance to exceed national energy efficiency standards by more than 30 percent. The renovation will preserve the historic exterior of the buildings, and the existing “townhouse-style” entries to resident rooms will be replaced with an interior connecting corridor within each building that will increase safety, accessibility, and sense of community for the residents. In the club wing of The Lawyers’ Club Building, approximately 67,000 gross square feet, we propose updating key infrastructure items integral with the dormitory wing, including new fire detection and suppression systems, and tuck-pointing of exterior masonry surfaces.
