Projects-Sheet Signs

The demolition of Epworth Hall in 2007 brought a temporary end to a student tradition of hanging sheet signs, which were a vehicle for advertising student events and airing current concerns.










Over the Summer of 2009, Facilites Operations crews built a new framework for hanging sheet signs on the Quad, between the Kellogg Center and Robinson Hall.


Stewardship - Adaptive Reuse

The process of adapting old structures and materials for purposes other than those initially intended.

Albion College Facilities Operations places a high priority on Adaptive Reuse in all construction, renovation, and maintenance projects. Benefits of adaptive reuse include lower material costs, a reduction in our ecological footprint, and architectural continuity.

507Another example of Adaptive Reuse is the renovation of the residential annexes, such as the "Owl House", located at 507 E. Erie.  These annexes are typically created from homes on the perimeter of the campus.

Typically, extensive renovations are required of these older homes to bring them up to the expected level for residentail housing.  Handicap Accessibility and modern wiring are two of the bigger challenges
