Author: Kathleen McDonnell


<?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = “urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags” />Duncan Hall, the University of Notre Dame’s first new residence hall in 10 years, has been selected as a recipient of Midwest Construction’s Best of 2008 competition.

The contest recognizes commercial construction and design in Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin and Eastern Missouri. Of the 128 projects entered in the annual competition, 36 were selected for the Best of 2008 award, which includes a feature in the December issue of Midwest Construction and recognition at an awards luncheon in Chicago that month.

The award is based on key criteria including quality, project management, team work and service. The entries were sorted by category and awarded either project of the year or award-of-merit honors. Duncan Hall was selected for an award of merit in the residential/hospitality category.

Duncan Hall opened its doors to 232 undergraduate men this fall. It is a three-story, 68,489-square-foot residence hall featuring six sections, each with a study space and social lounge with a kitchen and vending area. The building features a variety of room accommodations with each section featuring single rooms, doubles and triples. Rooms for four offer bay windows and private bathrooms. In addition, a chapel with a vaulted ceiling is located on the second floor.

Duncan Hall was underwritten with a gift from Raymond T. Duncan, a 1952 Notre Dame graduate, chairman of Duncan Oil Inc., in Denver and chairman and founder of Silver Oak Cellars in Oakville, Calif.
