Graves Hall Restoration
The third oldest building on campus proudly stands at the school's historical entrance in downtown Holland, MI. Constructed in 1894, it had gone through several renovations over the years. Lakewood Construction came on board to complete an "adaptive restoration" and bring the building into a modern era while retaining its original glory.

Lakewood Construction's relationship with Hope College began in the early 1980s with the first major project being the dining facility addition to Phelps Hall. Since that time, we have worked on a number of significant projects on the Hope College campus. Several of the most recent projects include:
The Martha Miller Center for Global Communications
The 49,100-sf Martha Miller Center for Global Communications is a two-story L-shaped building which features two wings joined together by a copper-roofed rotunda—a prominent feature designed and constructed to be the crowned jewel of the facility. A unique challenge to the design and construction of this building was its close proximity to railroad tracks over which 22 trains pass per day.

Cook Residential Village - Phase 1 & 2
This new residential village was designed to create a mini-neighborhood for 60 students. The buildings are designed to offer apartment-style living in a home-like cottage environment complete with modern amenities.
Career Development Office - 8th Street
This project broke the mold for Hope College as it pertains to office layout and design. Flexibility was the focus of the 4,722 sf layout in determining the use of mobile work stations versus traditional offices and cubicles. Four conference rooms were provided for private meetings or breakout areas and were configured to allow the right size meeting spot from two to 30.
