Dupage Campus Transformation
College Of Dupage Campus Renovation / Glen EllynIL
Can a college renovation increase enrollment?
To accommodate the rising sophistication of students today and into the future, the College of DuPage is in the midst of a large-scale renovation and revitalization of its campus facilities as well as multiple new construction projects. With these improvements underway since 2009, the college has already achieved an impressive 2% increase in enrollment, far exceeding the benchmark of enrollment decline (the next highest enrollment increase was only 0.3%).

Mortenson is a trusted partner of the college and has completed the multi-phased renovation of the 477,000 square foot Berg Instructional Center, renovations to the Student Resource Center, and addition of the 65,000 square foot Student Services Center, which creates a new "front door" for the campus. Most recently, Mortenson completed renovations to the college’s Library and McAninch Arts Center, furthering the college's journey towards creating a teaching and learning environment positioned for the future.

Construction Manager at Risk
We were dealing with the biggest renovation in the state of Illinois for higher-ed. The real key here is that Mortenson found a way to transition all three buildings and really minimize the impact to the college and to the community. That was not a small feat.
