The building was designed in 1982 to accept another floor. However, with many generations of building codes since that date, a separate feasibility study was required to determine if it was in fact possible to add the floor. The study included structural analysis, and later, HVAC, electrical & elevator reviews.
Cromwell also provided design for the addition of a 5th floor to the Sturgis Building. The floor will be utilized for physician faculty offices and their staffs.
