Minneapolis-based Opus Design Build has been hired to draw up the plans for the renovation of Miller Hall and Dieseth Hall on the Luther college campus—a $7.5 million project.
The Miller Hall renovation is scheduled to start in May and end in August. The Dieseth Hall renovation is scheduled for next summer.
Both dormitories will receive mechanical upgrades to meet today's standards for heating and air conditioning. Student rooms will receive new furniture and finishing details. Four-person suites will be added to each floor. New shower rooms will be installed on each floor with water-saving fixtures. Kitchenettes and laundry rooms will be provided on every floor. Common areas including study rooms and social lounges will also be renovated with new finishes and design features. Sound-proof music practice rooms will also be added in each tower. Elevator lobbies and corridors of both buildings will receive upgrades that will include new light fixtures, benches and other accent elements.
