Marquette University Johnston Hall

PREPARING COMMUNICATION STUDENTS FOR SUCCESS

C.D. Smith Construction was awarded construction management services for Marquette University’s historic Johnston Hall renovation project.

When Johnston Hall opened in 1907, it was the entirety of Marquette University. It was designed to serve as a one-building university with a two-story library, an auditorium, science laboratories, classrooms and even Jesuit living quarters. Today, it’s home to the J. William and Mary Diederich College of Communications.

C.D. Smith Construction completed Marquette University's Johnston Hall renovation project in Sept. 2019 as the commercial project's construction manager.

Formally tucked away on the second floor, the Communication + Media students now utilize a modernized open floor plan space that replicates the setting of professional media centers with green screens, audio and video TV control rooms and group collaboration space. Cutting edge media technology enables students to engage in an industry-like setting, preparing them for their professional careers in communication and media.

Features include: 

  • Student Media Center + Newsroom
  • Green Screen Room
  • Data Visualization Lab
  • State-Of-The-Art Virtual Set
  • Video-Audio Control Room
  • Two Radio Studios
  • Natural Lighting
  • Open Floor Plan
