The dust is flying in Kimball Tower as the home of the School of Public Health and Health Professions undergoes its most extensive renovation since its conversion from a dormitory in the 1970s.

More than $10 million in interior and exterior renovations—$2.7 million in masonry restoration and $7.5 million in interior work—began five years ago and is expected to be mostly completed by 2012.

The interior rehab project features a complete renovation of floors 2 through 11. Structural work includes replacement of concrete walls with drywall, updating of the electrical, plumbing, heating and cooling systems—the building now will have central air conditioning—and the installation of new data lines and wireless access on every floor. Cosmetic work includes painting, new carpeting, new tile in the foyers and new office doors, as well as new window blinds, kitchens and bathrooms, which will be ADA compliant.
