Transforming Zabel Hall

By Hennebery Eddy

Completed in early 2013, Zabel Hall is the primary classroom building for Eastern Oregon University’s College of Business and College of Education. The comprehensive renovation balances deferred maintenance and system upgrades with improved teaching and learning spaces. Classrooms were reconfigured to incorporate both traditional and modern instructional tools and provide for flexibility in teaching. The transformation includes a revitalized building entry, full window replacement, and the addition of a student commons and informal learning spaces to encourage more interaction between students and faculty.
