Build Ohio winners are selected by a panel of retired construction professionals on the following criteria:  excellence in customer service, meeting the challenge of a difficult job, excellence in project management, and innovations in construction techniques and materials.

University Hall was the first building to open on Bowling Green State University’s campus in 1915. Housing the President’s office, all administrative functions, classrooms, a theater over a gymnasium and more, the iconic building endured extensive use as well as eight substantial renovation projects over the next century.

Mosser Construction was selected to improve on University Hall’s original splendor and transform it into a key recruiting tool for today’s admissions efforts.

2017 Build Ohio Award – BGSU University Hall Renovation

Surprises greeted Mosser behind and within every wall. Archways and doorways were created, requiring methodical demolition to preserve the original 100-year old bricks which Mosser re-used to infill existing openings which were no longer needed.

The original two-story theater and gymnasium was demolished and the area now features four floors and houses the largest single-elevation classroom on campus.The grand marble stairway in the main entryway was refurbished and the space transformed into a more open, welcoming area which features old-world plastering and finishing techniques to enhance the existing iconic essence of the building.

We are truly honored to have won this highly respected industry award from the Associated General Contractors of Ohio.
