Construction Project Update

Reynolds has ongoing construction projects at all three campus locations and will soon break ground on our new Culinary Institute in Richmond’s east end.

Parham Road
Renovations of Georgiadis Hall are coming to a close and due to be complete just in time for the start of Fall classes. The core systems – HVAC, plumbing, electrical, fire and life safety – have all be modernized. Five new science laboratories to support expanded STEM-H enrollments and a new testing center were also added to Georgiadis Hall. It will now house the Student Success Center, Student Accommodations, Student Life, Student Affairs, Orientation Career and Transfer Services, Marketing, Admissions and Records, Financial Aid, the Business Office, the Campus Store and Julian’s CafĂ©, and other offices.

The Brookside Hall
The elevator in Brookside Hall is out of service, but should be repaired by September 15, 2017. Faculty and staff unable to use stairs to reach the upper floors should contact their supervisor. Affected students should contact the Office of Student Accommodations. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Downtown Campus
Sidewalk repairs that were ongoing during 2017 will be complete before fall classes begin on August 21, 2017. A new parking access system was installed during the summer and the entire parking deck was power washed.

Goochland Campus
Construction has been progressing on the Goochland Campus all summer and is expected to be complete by the end of the Fall 2017 semester. The project included renovations to the existing greenhouses and the installation of a new emergency generator to insure continuous power. Currently the greenhouse end wall and plastic covering are all in place. The mechanical work is complete and the electrical work is in its last stages. The final phase is to connect the new generator to the propane source.
