UVM SLADE HALL

Burlington, VT

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Slade Hall is a 24-bed student residence designed by McKim, Mead, and White and constructed in 1928. For many years, it served as a home for the Ecological Cooperative, a group of students dedicated to sustainable living, until the discovery of environmental hazards like black mold and asbestos necessitated relocation of students and plans for a full renovation of the building. In addition to remediation of environmental problems, renovations included replacement of the slate roof, energy and life safety upgrades, and general interior and exterior cosmetic repairs. Phase II of the project included replacement of most of the windows – a complex process involving many factors (see “Historic Windows: Restore or Replace?”) Upon completion in 2019, the project received LEED Gold certification.
