Remodeling improves fifth floor classrooms

5th floor When you walk into the State Street building’s fifth floor area, you can’t help but notice the classrooms got a makeover.

During the holiday break, the lighting was improved, the carpeting was replaced and the rooms got new chairs.

The color scheme changed from a soft green to shades of brown. The hallways are much brighter, and acoustic panels were installed in the classrooms to reduce echo.

Chad Harrell of the architectural firm Griskelis Young & Harrell, directed the work. “This project was a good, cost-effective way of updating a space,” he said.
