The William N. Pennington Student Achievement Center project, built for the University of Nevada, Reno, included the new construction of a three-story, 77,345-square-foot student services building. The facility houses multiple student resource centers, which consist of the writing center, math center, tutoring center, Nevada career studio, advising center, Student Veterans Affairs, disabilities resource center, counseling services, and Trio and McNair Scholars, and supports reflection and meditation rooms. The project featured the demolition of the existing library and the incorporation of the original granite materials from the library into the new student services building, preserving the campus history in a new, state-of-the-art facility. The William N. Pennington Student Acheivement Center was constructed of a structural steel frame on a spread and beam concrete foundation with a masonry and glass curtain wall exterior, and a single-ply metal roof.
