VALENTI SCHOOL, HOUSTON, TX

TypePro-Bono Redevelopment

 

Description: The Valenti School renovation will create a state-of-the-art media operation, including larger digital editing suites, an advanced broadcast control center and new two-story production studio to be constructed at the northeast corner of the existing structure. 

 

OverviewIn Spring 2008, the University of Houston renamed its School of Communications after alumnus and former Motion Picture Association of America head Jack J. Valenti. A $2.5 million capital campaign was launched shortly thereafter to raise funds for a complete renovation of the School.
Working in coordination with university staff and the UH Board of Regents, Wind River Group assumed development responsibilities for the project including initial planning/feasibility studies, conceptual design and assistance in the capital campaign effort.

As part of its efforts, WRG brought on board world-renowned architect Rick Keating, (Keating Khang Architecture) to create the initial design concept. The design phase was completed in April, 2009 and initial construction will commence in early 2010.
