Donnan Administration Building Set to Open Soon
Posted on: November 20, 2023
Tigerville, SC (November 20, 2023) Move-in day is approaching at North Greenville University’s (NGU) historic administration building in Tigerville.
Less than a year after construction began, the Donnan/COBE Project is nearing completion.
Work continued on the building’s main grand entryway in October as crews installed exterior finishes and high-efficiency outdoor HVAC units. Progress was also made on the administration building’s balconies, overlooking the Tigerville campus and offering a view of Glassy Mountain in the distance. Inside, door frames were installed as preparations began for interior finishes. Crews added interior paint, ceiling grids, and ceiling tiles.
The renovated structure, located at the highest point of NGU’s campus, will provide five contemporary classrooms; student gathering, meeting, and collaboration spaces; and faculty offices for the College of Business and Entrepreneurship. It will also house offices for NGU’s executive leadership, financial officers and general counsel.
“It’s creating collaborative spaces where faculty and students can come together, not only for instruction, but also for discipleship,” said Jonathan Keisler, associate dean of the College of Business and Entrepreneurship. “We’re going to leverage this new facility to change students’ lives and the marketplace.”
The Donnan/COBE Project was designed by Greenville’s Equip Studio and is managed by Jones Lang Lasalle (JLL). Hood Construction is providing general contractor services. A photo timeline will be updated throughout The Donnan/COBE Project.
The Donnan/COBE capital campaign began in 2022, and Keisler said NGU students are greatly benefiting from the generosity of others.
“From the bottom of my heart, I want to thank those who already supported this project,” he said. “If you’re considering giving, now is the time.”
