UNC New East Building ADA Compliant Elevator Addition

Chapel Hill, North Carolina
Under Construction

Muter Construction is working with Huffman Architects to perform the renovation of a historic four-story facility to add an ADA compliant elevator.  This is no small task  in an existing building, constructed in 1861.  The project required the demolition of concrete flooring and excavation to make room for the elevator pit before the elevator shaft could begin to rise up through the subsequent floors to fourth floor.  The project also includes demolition of floors, walls, doors, ceilings and casework.

Upon completion, the new elevator will ensure that this building is easily accessible to all people.
