Peru State College
Delzell Hall was originally constructed in the late 1930s and had not seen many updates since it was built. Peru State wanted to start updating the residence hall, starting with the windows to improve the energy efficiency of the building as well as freshen up the exterior facades. Due to the building not having any air conditioning, the windows were the only source of cooling in the building for over 70 years. This caused much of the interior wood window trim to be very worn and in need of repair or replacement. All of the wood trim around the windows was either refinished or replaced. Following this project a few years later, the rest of Delzell Hall was completely remodeled and reopened in August 2017.
