Elizabeth City State University Awards Contract For Design Services
May 25, 2017

Elizabeth City State University (ECSU), a public, historically black college and a constituent institution of The University of North Carolina, has contracted with Woolpert, a national architecture, engineering and geospatial (AEG) firm, to provide comprehensive design services for the G.R. Little Library and Moore Hall, both located on the University’s rural campus in northeast North Carolina.

Valued at $13 million, the project will encompass renovation and modernization of the library and the hall, the latter of which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The renovations will be partially funded by the $2 billion Connect NC bond issue passed in March.

Woolpert Architect Robert Griffin said plans for G.R. Little Library will reflect the 21st-century design philosophy for libraries, which includes the creation of flexible study spaces with quick access to multimedia resources, the forming of a central knowledge and learning community/campus hub, and an overall environment of connected learning that addresses the needs of college students in 2017 and beyond.

Moore Hall, one of the first buildings built on campus, will be converted from its traditional classroom setting and auditorium into a general purpose instructional academic building. Renovations will provide for distance learning and ready access to technology, and include multipurpose lecture rooms and study rooms.

Woolpert will orchestrate these ECSU projects simultaneously in a construction management style. Planning is underway, and construction is slated to begin later this year.
