University of Florida Weil Hall

The Weil Hall project was a major renovation to the existing Engineering Building. Weil Hall was originally constructed in the late 1940s and is a five story structural concrete and brick veneer building. Demolition involved asbestos and lead abatement and demolition of all but the structural members including a large “wave tank” used by the coastal engineering department. Upon completion of the demolition on the fifth floor, Ajax followed behind installing new mechanical and electrical systems, drywall partitions and finishes. The process continued downward to the remaining four floors. The new portion of the building now has new state-of- the-art mechanical, electrical, fire protection, and communications systems. It houses offices, classrooms, and laboratories. The exterior was re-landscaped and the North side now has a wide new promenade with low brick seat walls creating a new people friendly space.
