Holden Hall Renovation

Holden Hall, home of Virginia Tech's Mining and Minerals Engineering Department, was built in the 1940s and has served the department for over 70 years. Since the spring of 2019 a major renovation is underway which promises to update the department's classroom and laboratory facilities and create transformative learning spaces focused on mining automation and robotics.

Renovation will target the building’s 3-story south wing. New construction will include the demolition of the single-story east and north wings, the replacement of the north wing with a new 4-story wing, and the replacement of the east wing with a new 3-story wing. Renovations are anticipated to be complete in winter 2021.
