The renovation of Furman Hall included total reconfiguration of its interior spaces, new energy efficient windows, updated HVAC and electrical systems, new computer network systems and new finishes. Furman Hall was the first academic building constructed when Furman University relocated to its present campus and has been used continuously for more than 40 years. The 68,000 sq ft building houses Classical Languages, Continuing Education, English, Graduate Studies, History, Asian Studies, Philosophy, Religion, Modern Languages, Language Laboratory, Copy Services and Multimedia Lab. The renovated Furman Hall blends state-of-the-art technology and building systems within the context of the ‘traditional’ Furman University architecture. Furman University has adopted a policy of sustainable design, and accordingly, Furman Hall is in the process of tracking LEED Silver Certification.
