Project Profile

Villanova Falvey Hall

This interior renovation of the Falvey Hall Library Reading Room and Holy Grounds Café was accomplished on an extremely tight schedule during the University’s summer break. Careful coordination and scheduling was required to meet the timeline. Additionally, the project required the removal, protection, and re-hanging of an old and valuable art masterpiece weighing approx. 1,400 pounds once crated. The piece is an historic and important focal point of the Reading Room, and AdamsBickel was honored to be involved with its handling and care.

Opening Quote

I greatly appreciated AdamsBickel's work in constructing two renovation projects simultaneously on the Swarthmore College campus.  Their procurement was thorough - getting good subcontractors and competitive pricing.  I appreciated their superintendent's anticipation of upcoming tasks and courtesy in communicating with staff working adjacent to the construction.
