Greencastle, Indiana


Hoover Hall, the latest addition to the DePauw campus provides a replacement solution to “the Hub” originally intended to serve 350 students, accommodate more than 1,000 DePauw students daily. The new hall serves as the primary dining space for first-year students and upper-class students living in University housing.

Robert A.M.

ABD’s services included Room Acoustics, Mechanical Noise Control, and Noise Isolation.
