CONSTRUCTION RENOVATIONS UNDERWAY IN ROBERTS HALL
Since being named dean in 2000 Michael A. Fitts has recruited 13 additional scholars and teachers to the faculty. The expansion of the faculty now requires the school to create space to house them. This summer the third floor of Biddle Law Library in Nicole E. Tanenbaum Hall underwent minor renovations to create ten new offices. Tanenbaum, constructed in 1993 to house the expanding library and to provide new space for student groups, will temporarily accommodate faculty displaced from Roberts Hall, the 1963 wing on the north side of the Law School complex. Roberts Hall will undergo renovations throughout the academic year to make room for the growing faculty and to upgrade the existing space. After construction, the new spaces in Tanenbaum will be transformed into administrative offices, study space for students and, potentially, seminar rooms. Muscoe Martin of Susan Maxman and Partners, and David Ade, are the architects who drew up the plans. Jeffrey M. Brown Associates completed the construction in Tanenbaum Hall.
