The project included a facade restoration, renovation/retrofit, and expansion to Malloy Residence Hall, a 3-story wood framed facility constructed in the late 1980s. The 285-bed residence hall consisted of single and double rooms, as well as rooms for Resident Assistants. The goal of the renovation was to increase the count to 325 beds.

The building included steep slope roofing systems with exterior cladding including EIFS on the upper elevations and brick wainscoting at the base of the walls. Fenestration systems included a hybrid of aluminum clad perimeter frames with vinyl framed insert windows.

Completed in two concurrent phases, the first phase consisted of the complete removal and replacement of the façade, structural repairs to deteriorated wood framing, new waterproofing membrane, new windows to increase daylight in the rooms, roof replacement and site improvements. Phase two included renovations to the interior, including relocation and expansion of the laundry room, a café, the construction of dormers at the attic and a ground floor addition to provide a new student center as well as 40 additional beds meeting the goal of 325. Both phases were accomplished over the summer in a 13 week schedule.
