Addressing an audience of several hundred, Fr. Lawrence Biondi, President Emeritus, congratulated all involved in the transformation of the former Bauman-Eberhardt Hall, including specific mention of Fox Architects and McCarthy Construction plus the SLU Design & Construction Department.  Common to all of the remarks offered by speeches from the podium were compliments of appreciation and awe in the transformation of the old West Pine Gym in support of its new role this century as a campus home to international studies students and faculty.  Exemplifying the conviction that the most sustainable building is the one that already exists, this renovation marks another remarkable example of the responsible stewardship of resources embodied in that belief.  Congratulations to the Saint Louis University community in the realization of this effort.
