In The Works

Welch Hall Plaza

In 2008, UT determined that the existing second floor roof deck needed a new waterproofing system. This provided an opportunity for the Plaza Renovation with new amenities for the faculty, staff, and students as well as updated green roof technology.

The plaza will have covered metal canopies, a water feature with adjacent seat walls, raised planters, and pots. The water feature will consist of a series of vertical pipes to provide a cooling sound. A concession stand will provide food service. Tables and chairs with umbrellas will offer lunch time seating.

The planting will be native and adapted material that has been found to be durable in protected courtyard situations. An engineered soil mix will provide a lightweight alternative to topsoil.
