The Convocation Center and Annex Building project was one in a long history of projects Landis has completed for Xavier University. Bounded by Short, Palm, and Stroelitz Streets, the project includes a 94,000 square foot multi-purpose Arena and a 23,000 square foot Annex Building. Both buildings are structural steel-framed, precast pile-supported buildings with a brick and Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete (GFRC) exterior that will resemble the rest of the university’s unique appearance. The Arena can accommodate 4,500 people, serving as the location of the university's baccalaureate ceremonies and convocations. In addition, the facility functions as a new gymnasium, replacing the old gymnasium that sustained severe damage during Hurricane Katrina. In keeping with the green-building trend, the project is LEED-certified with a SILVER rating.
