Renovation plan for UH's Gartley Hall advances

Advertiser Staff

Gov. Linda Lingle released $951,000 today for renovation design plans of Gartley Hall at the University of Hawai'i at Manoa.

The hall was constructed in 1921, and is one of the oldest buildings on the campus.

The hall is set to undergo a $12 million renovation, which will include improving access for people with disabilities and modernizing classrooms and labs.

The design phase of the project will start next month and finish in February 2008.

The hall is listed on the State and National Registers of Historic Places.

"Gartley Hall represents the history and future of the University of Hawai'i," Lingle said in a news release. "It is important that the hall is renovated to provide students with programs and opportunities to compete in the global economy."
