HONOLULU — Governor Linda Lingle has released $951,000 in design funds for the renovation of Gartley Hall located on the University of Hawaiʻi — Mānoa campus.

The renovation will maximize the use of space, correct health, safety and code standards, and make the facility accessible to people with disabilities. Upon completion of the renovation, students and faculty will be provided with modern and adequate offices, and seminar and conference rooms to meet instructional and research needs.

Constructed in 1921, Gartley Hall is one of the oldest buildings in the "Old Quadrangle" on the UH Mānoa campus, which also includes Crawford Hall, George Hall, Hawaiʻi Hall and Dean Hall. All five buildings are listed in the State and National Registers of Historic Places.

"Gartley Hall represents the history and future of the University in Hawaiʻi," said Governor Lingle. "It is important that the hall is renovated to provide students with programs and opportunities to compete in the global economy."

"This project provides much-needed modernization for the center of our Department of Psychology, which has the largest number of majors on the Mānoa campus," said UH Mānoa Interim Chancellor Denise Eby Konan.

The total project cost is $12,066,000. The design consultant is expected to be selected by the end of April 2007. The design phase will start in May 2007 and is scheduled for completion in February 2008.
