Central Washington University Barto Hall


The previous Barto Hall at Central Washington University no longer met the needs of the growing university.  This new 117,000 SF wood frame residence hall provides more than just additional rooms for students - an attached multipurpose suite serves the building and is accessible to all campus residents.  A dynamic central area serves as the nexus for the three residence wings and features alternating two story meeting spaces and large uninterrupted northern views.  Utilization of pre-fabricated wood wall assemblies not only facilitated a quick construction schedule but also helped to achieve the LEED Platinum rating by reduced waste.
