University of Notre Dame continues architectural legacy with new and renovated student residential halls

The University of Notre Dame’s first, new, student residence in more than a decade, Duncan Hall, begins its second year in service this autumn, while the recently renovated Cavanaugh Hall begins its 73rd year providing on-campus housing. Helping to preserve the University campus’ architectural heritage and extend the life of its buildings, both halls feature the historically-styled, modern performance of Wausau Window and Wall Systems’ durable windows.

“These are two of at least a half dozen projects at Notre Dame that the University has relied on Wausau’s historic panning and casement windows,” says Scott Swartz, project manager for glazing contractor Precision Wall Systems in South Bend, Ind. “While most of our involvement has been historic renovation, Duncan Hall is newly constructed student housing, built to resemble a historic structure.”

“It is very important that each of Notre Dame’s residential halls match the look of the other buildings on campus,” explains Dave DeBettignies, Wausau’s regional sales manager for Indiana.

Throughout the last five years, Swartz, DeBettignies and colleagues worked closely with Notre Dame’s Office of the University Architect to achieve the proper performance and historic look.
