Project Description

Neumann Brothers renovated this 33,000 square foot former glove factory into administrative offices for Grinnell College. The project included installing new windows and stone sills, updating the mechanical/electrical systems, and adding a glass curtainwall and courtyard entrance. A grand staircase of steel and glass is a striking feature of the building's interior. Project work also included the complete removal of a 38,000 square foot metal building, its slabs, and its footings from the site.
