ST. LOUIS, MO – As the tallest building on Lincoln University’s campus, Dawson Hall is a 10-story residential facility, originally built in 1970, and about to undergo an extensive renovation. S. M. Wilson is serving as the Construction Manager Agent for the project. 

The residential building originally housed freshman and upper-class females, and in May 2009 the hall was designated the University’s freshmen center and became coed. Residents assigned to the hall are classified as first-time freshmen most, not all, having just graduated from high school. The goal of this change is to enhance the first-year experience and increase retention.

As part of the project, renovation of the common living spaces will allow for computer labs, resource rooms and virtual learning capabilities. Other interior renovations will all include private toilets, and shower rooms, along with all new mechanical systems, interior upgrades, life safety and code compliance, new finishes and modernizations throughout the building. In addition to interior renovations, the exterior envelope of the facility will receive window replacement, roof repairs, tuckpointing, waterproofing and ADA access. 

S. M. Wilson is a leader in construction management for higher education. Our company has completed a variety of projects at the following institutions: Westminster College, McKendree University, Millikin University, Fontbonne University, Columbia College, Stephens College, Washington University and University of Missouri-St. Louis, to name a few.
