Leading manufacturer/distributor teams up with the UNCW Parents Council to build the Colonnade connecting the Fisher Student Center and the BurneyCenter.
WILMINGTON, N.C., January 29, 2010—The University of North Carolina Wilmington has added a Colonnade that connects the Fisher Student Center and the newly-renovated Burney Center. Orchestrated by the UNCW Parents Council, the Colonnade is the finishing touch to the council’s aim for a centralized social space. Adjacent from the University Union, the Colonnade serves as both a campus mark and an outlet for students to dine at the campus café. The Colonnade was completed in 2006 and features 32 premium Tuscan columns.
Strategically structured in the heart of campus, the Colonnade serves to provide a gathering place for current faculty and students, while establishing a sense of tradition among alumni. This symbol of excellence was made possible because of the UNCW Parents Council’s generosity and dedication.
The architect for the project was Bill Moser of Moser Mayer Phoenix Associates, which is located in Greensboro, North Carolina, and the contractor was Barnhill Contracting Company, headquartered in Tarboro, North Carolina.
For more than 20 years, Chadsworth Incorporated has understood the aim to aesthetically progress local communities, and, for this, they were both eager and humble to contribute to yet another community endeavor.
Chadsworth Incorporated would, again, like to commend the excellent teamwork exhibited in the creation of the Colonnade.
