Pugh Hall serves as an anchor in the campus historic district, proudly reflecting the rich history of the University of Florida, while effectively synthesizing contemporary features and detailing into the design, hence serving as a symbol of the energy and vitality that will carry UF into the future. Pugh Hall is a 40,150 sq ft., three-story building that includes a 203-seat auditorium, classrooms and seminar room space, a two-story atrium that serves as a public speaking venue and exhibit area, plus conference , office and other support space for the Graham Center for Public Service, the Samuel Proctor Oral History Program, the Department of African & Asian Languages and Literature and the Center for European Studies. Moses Engineering design included HVAC, plumbing, fire protection, electrical, access control, information transport and audio/visual systems. Before construction of the building could commence, existing underground utilities had to be relocated. These utilities included medium voltage electrical feeders, fiber optic and twisted pair copper telecommunications cabling, campus chilled water piping, campus steam piping, sewer and sanitary piping. Moses Engineering was tasked with expediting the design of an “Early Release Package”, that included the complete design of these relocations. This allowed the design of the building to be concurrent with the actual construction of the utility relocation, resulting in a faster overall project delivery. The cost of the utility relocation portion alone was $3,200,000.
