Allegheny College - Patricia Bush Tippie Alumni Center
Meadville, Pennsylvania


Complete restoration and partial expansion of a 100-year-old mixed-use building on the Allegheny College campus for conversion to an alumni center. Structural work included adding a new entrance to the building’s east face, reframing multiple staircases, reinforcing the existing roof to support mechanical upgrades, replacing deteriorated beams for adequate support of the ceremonial mezzanine, and adding retaining walls to the grounds. Special framing was also required for skylights and floor openings.
