  • 20.11.26 / 김해선

 

The remodeling project of Kookmin University'salumni hall was successfully completed two months of construction. In particular, it is that more than 97 percent of the construction cost was covered by alumni fundraising.The remodeling project of the alumni hall, which began in January with the announcementof the New Year's address by the president of the alumni association, was completed in early June. The alumni hall, built in 1978, has been for more than 40 years. All parts of the building were worn and warn out and unsustainable. Most of the paint in the hallway was peeland unsightly.

 

There have been discussions about remodeling for the past 15 years, but progress has been frustrating. The finance of the alumni association was not enough to raise constructioncosts.

 

However, the will of the association and the enthusiastic participation of alumni members have helped solve the problem. A remodeling promotion team consisting of alumni architects visited the alumni hall several times to conduct due dilligerce and design. Alumni gathered about 30 percent of the target amount within a month of rasing funds.

 

The remodeling was completed after two months of construction. The ugly exterior, entrance, and hallway were neatly decorated, and the name "Kookmin University Alumni Hall" was engraved on the outer wall with a logo reveal the identity of the building.
