Champions Hall, so named because a significant part of its cost was made possible by the University of Arkansas athletics department, is the first new classroom building constructed on campus since 2007. The four-story educational facility houses nine general purpose classrooms, 12 biology labs, and the Math Resource and Teaching Center. The center includes a testing center, office space for many of the math teaching faculty, and a teaching center where students can study and get help with mathematics. An estimated 8,000 students will take math classes in Champions Hall this semester, with another 3,000 students using the biology labs. An additional 2,700 students will use the general purpose classrooms.
Nabholz’ Custom Millwork and Cabinetry built and installed trim work, wall paneling and millwork inside the building, including a stunning mesquite feature wall. Pre-finished panels of various thicknesses were installed one-by-one using a tongue and groove system, giving the wall a three-dimensional look.
