Keim Hall

Keim Hall, located on the East Campus of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, was built in 1950 and had not been renovated during its almost 60-year history. The 49,800 SF renovation project was designed and constructed to achieve LEED Silver status and included a complete replacement of all electrical and mechanical systems, laboratories, classrooms, and office space.

Prior to the 49,800 SF renovation Keim Hall experienced uneven heating and cooling issues, which made some laboratories unable to sustain the equipment that scientists needed to conduct research and teach students. The interior of the building was completely reconfigured with new laboratories, classrooms, meeting rooms, and office space. Usable space was added to the building by moving the center corridor that originally ran through the building's wings to an outer wall, along with moving the heating and cooling equipment to a penthouse in the top level The building received a new exterior facade on the south wall of the interior courtyard. The north wall of the building was opened up and a new walkway and three-story curtain wall was installed to give panoramic views of the courtyard.
