INTRODUCTION
This report is being written for the Preservation Department of the College of Architecture at the University of Florida and with the advisement of Professors Blair Reeves and Phillip Wis ley. Compiled in the Spring of 1982, this document lists important facts about the condition of Floyd Hall located on the University of Florida Campus.
This report is the result of investigation and visual observation on the condition of the structure, details and fabric of Floyd Hall. Intended to be used as a preservation tool, this report lists factual evidence that should be used in conjunction with a well thought out and thorough plan for the preservation and rehabilitation of this structure. Problems and recommendations listed within are to aid the planners and contractors in realistically and efficiently developing and carrying out a plan of attack.
As a second part of thorough investigation this report was designed to work in conjunction with the documentation drawings developed at the same date. Used together, this package will provide valuable information to any interested parties trying to gather facts, plan and implement a process for the preservation of Floyd Hall.
Finally, should anything happen to the structure before preservation could begin, this report will serve as an accurate documentation of the appearance and condition of the Hall at this date. It is hoped that this information will be put to good use in the preservation of this significant building.


Floyd Hall is a structurally sound building. There are numerous problems with details, fabrics and in general many separate p a r t s 0f the building. However, the internal structure and basic components of the building seem to be in very good condition. The one exception being the roof structure.
The truss and beam structure of the roof has been exposed to excessive amounts of water for a prolonged period of time. The leak in the roof fabric appears to be located immediately above one of the major beams. This wooden structural member is wet to touch and has grown considerably softer than the surrounding structure. An investigation as to the stability of this member is necessary.
Other problems of Floyd Hall are generally less important. The fabric of the roof needs to be repaired or replaced. Tar is old and gravel is missing from the flat roof area causing leaks and water damage to the floors below.
Bricks are generally in fair to good condition. Their problems include mold, mosses, and vines growing on the exterior surfaces and in the mortar joints causing water accumulation and softening of the fabric. There is some spalling of the bricks in several places, localized mainly, and they are all considerably weather worn.
There are no major or even minor, visable cracks in the exterior skin showing that the building has settled evenly.
There is some cracking of the stone details on the front, but this appears to be a product of exposure and plant growth.


Along the roof lines there can be noticed a slight sag on the West side of the structure. This seems to be a result of age and stress on the timber structure. It could also possibly be related to the later addition of a fire escape to that side. Doors were punched out of the walls for exits and on the 3rd floor one dormer was removed and two others tied together in order to provide an escape route. The roof sag occurs directly above this area. Further investigation is necessary.
The small fire escapes on the West Ends of the building are severely rusted and inust be replaced. Bolts anchoring them to the walls are also failing.
Windows and trim are severly weather worn. Problems include pealing, cracking, and checking paint and wood. There are several instances of rot especially at the corner joints. Many glass panes are broken and/or missing and in several places complete sections of the window have been removed to install small window unit air conditioners. On the North side the ceiling has been lowered to the mid point of the windows causing the upper half to be boarded up. Several other windows have boards over them for various reasons.
Rain gutters are pulling away from the building in some places and all are filled with gravel. Some of the downspouts leak, causing moss growth on the bricks.
The loading ramp on the West side is severely deteriorated. The concrete filler is rotting away and some of the supporting bricks are crumbling.


In general, the exterior condition of the structure is good considering what appears to be a poor maintenance record. While the interior, mainly flooring and ceiling, shows significant water damage indicating repair to the roof is the immediate problem that should be remedied to prevent further damage.
The roofing and resulting leaks should be repaired yesterday. If the decision to renovate or restore is planned, this group feels that demolition is out of the question.
Various modifications to the interior spaces have been haphazardly or insensitively applied and should be removed. Any work that is not of the original design should be demolished and the original floor plan be respected.
The floors through the building are in poor condition. For the most part, all floors should be removed completely and replaced with tile to match the original. Water damage is prevalant especially on the Third Floor where moisture from roof leaks have caused considerable damage. In this care the wood decking that is damaged should be replaced.
The plaster walls are in generally good condition considering the condition of the general interior of the building. The major problem is hairline cracks and discoloration. Again, moisture could be present in some areas and the extent of moisture damage should be thoroughly investigated. All drywall construction should be removed.
Many doors have been damaged by mixmatched hardware applications. Other than the hardware ineonsistancies, the original


doors are in relatively good condition. In general, the doors should be removed, sanded, patched and restained.
Windows have been broken, damaged, boarded up to satisfy photographic dark room requirements and removed to accommodate window air conditioning units. Windows on one area of the East facade have even been replaced with smaller ones and the wall adjacent tastelessly patched with concrete. Although many windows appear in good condition, all windows should be sanded, primed and repa i nted.
There are three different types of ceilings present, plaster on wood lath, fiber board w/battens, and acoustical lay in tiles and drop aluminum ceiling grids. All ceilings that are not original should be removed and original ceilings be restored.
The electrical system has no order. Very few lighting fixtures match, exposed conduit, and emergency lighting and exit signs placed with no consideration for aesthetics.
Mechanical Systems consist of exposed duct work on the exterior and interior walls. There apparently is an airhandler in an unaccessible area of room 108 that feeds through the exterior and into the first floor area it serves. Window units have been removed and laid on the floor in some spaces.
The owner should retain the services of a wel1-qua 1ified engineer registered in the State of Florida, for each of the three disiplines: mechanical, electrical and structural to study the existing conditions and report to the owner their recommendations. The electrical, air conditioning, plumbing, and structural system should be upgraded in close collaboration with the preservation architect.

Site Name Floyd Hall
Present & Original Physical Appearance (use continuation sheet if necessary) (935==):
Floyd Hall was constructed in 1912, in the Collegiate Gothic style, to house the College of Agriculture. Located directly opposite the southwest corner of the Plaza of the America's on Newell Dr., Floyd Hall has always occupied an important central-campus site. Constructed at a time when the entire University of Florida consisted of no more than 10 buildings, Floyd Hall was a vital part of the original campus "masterplan'.'
Floyd Hall is constructed of red brick in an American Bond pattern with deeply raked joints. The lintels, window sills, belt course, coping, and all other trim is of white stone. The roof is sheathed with orange asbestos shingles over the sloping hip and gables, and built-up asphalt sheathing with gravel over the flat area of the roof.
The windows are regularly spaced throughout the structure, with: 3 bays of 9 over 9 double-hung wood sash windows in each of the large dormers of the east and west elevations, 2 bays of 12 over 12 double-hung wood sash windows between either of the gables and the entry bay on the east elevation, 8 bays of 9 over 9 double-hung wood sash windows between the gables on the west elevation, and 3 bays of 9 over 9 double-hung wood sash windows on either side of the entry bays on the north and south elevations. Other windows in Floyd include casement windows of varying dimensions in the north and south and east entry bays, and 2x3 single-hung pivoting wood sash windows in small dormers on the east and west elevations.
The two main entrances to Floyd, which are on the north and east elevations and which step up half-a-story to the first floor, have a great deal of white stone detail and ornament. Above each entry is a cast-stone relief depicting a horn of plenty filled with fruit, vegetables, and plant life. The east entry bay ilso projects out from the facade, diminishing in size as it increases in height, and its doors are recessed into the building under a shallow arch, creating a small porch. The east entry is further adorned by the words College of Agriculture carved out of white stone over the center of the bay.
There have been few alterations to the exterior of Floyd. The east elevation remains virtually unchanged except for a few boarded-up windows and broken panes of glass. The north and south facades are in much the same condition, with the exception of the introduction of several obtrusive vertical supports applied to the masonry walls to provide additional lateral stability. The west facade has been the

most dramatically affected by change over the years. Several steel-grate fire escapes have been applied to the ends of the facade -- on the dormers and a large steel-frame/concrete infill fire escape was constructed at the center of the facade, with windows cut for doors. All of the fire escapes are in very poor repair, peeling paint and rusting. Other alterations on the west facade include the boarding-up of a large double-door in the north corner, and the application of galvanized steel ductwork to the exterior.
The interior of Floyd Hall consists of three floors, all arranged with a central hall running north-south through their full length, connected by a single set of stairs which wind through a three-story open space. All of the interior details are very simple and plain, requiring little description. The ceilings are approximately 12 feet tall throughout, and are plaster on wood lath The interior walls and partitions are plaster and wood lath on masonry walls and plaster and wood lath on wood studs. Several interior spaces have wood wainscot-ting and wood chair rails. Flooring is vinyl-asbestos tiles on wood decking.
Interior spaces are, for the most part, brightly lit and airy because of the many large windows throughout the building. These spaces are deteriorating rapidly, however. Leaks in the roof and broken windows are causing a great deal of water damage. Most of the plaster is cracking, floors are sagging, tiles are buckling, all of the wood is damaged or rotting, and all of the interior finishes are quickly degenerating. Exterior surfaces and materials are also deteriorating rapidly. The roof needs to be replaced, the mortar needs repointing, several stone details are cracked and need to be repaired. Windows are broken; vine, moss, and mold are taking over the brick; and exterior wood is peeling, cracking, and rotting. The building has been unoccupied and virtually untouched for over three years and is in dire need of major maintenance and repair.

Remarks & Recommendations: Floyd Hall is a valueable, significant part of the University of Florida's architectural and historical heritage. Its scale, materials and design are all important to the context of its site. Floyd Hall has recently been abandoned and stands unused. It is rapidly falling into disrepair. I recommend that Floyd Hall be repaired, restored, and maintained as a once-again useful part of the University. The present and future expansion needs of the University could be fulfilled in a contextually and historically aware method by preserving and reusing Floyd Hall. Although major renovations are necessary, the building is basically structuraay sound and the cost of renovation would be significantly less than comparable new construction. Floyd Hall also has a great deal more to offer the University than any type of new construction. It is a link with the past, a piece of the University Qoe.
_of Florida's rapidly vanishing history._ ojo=-


Statement of Significance (use continuation sheet if necessary)
Floyd Hall was constructed in 1912 and was one of the first ten buildings that made up the University of Florida. The architect for Floyd Hall was William A. Edwards of Atlanta, the first campus architect. He designed a number of significant buildings throughout the Southeast, several of which are now on the National Register of Historic Places. Floyd Hall was designed in the Collegiate Gothic style, which was very popular as a design style at the time it was constructed. The design of Floyd Hall illustrates the culmination of Edward's efforts with this style at the University of Florida, following the design and construction of Newell Hall, Flint Hall, Anderson Hall, and Peabody Hall.
Floyd Hall has always occupied a very important central-campus location on the University of Florida adjacent to the Plaza of the America's, and as such, it is extremely important to the context of this part of the University. Floyd Hall's overall scale, its fenestration and articulation, and the materials that it is constructed of are all very significant elements to this specific area of the campus, where one can perceive a sense of human scale, a sense of character, and a sense of the campus's history. The design and placement of Floyd has a strong relationship to the other buildings which surround it. For example, Floyd Hall's main entry is directly on axis to the main entrance of Peabody Hall, ( straight across the Plaza of the America's ). Floyd Hall is an expression of the founding principles of the University and an extension of the original masterplan of the campus. As such, Floyd Hall represents an extremely valueable part of this relatively young Universi r*S architectural and historical heritage. The significance of Floyd Hall must be realized and this structure must be preserved if the University of Florida is ever to hang on to the few remaining vestiges of its quickly forgotten past.




GENERAL NOTES
1. This maintenance report is designed to bring Floyd Hall to a restored condition with alterations for safety and code only. A permanent maintenance schedule should be
designed and implemented.
2. Unless otherwise noted, 10" baseboards throughout.
3. Corridors, halls, and stairwells have wainscot unless otherwise stated.
4. Doors and hardware should be coordinated to where there is order to each floor. Original hardware should be salvaged if possible and used in minimum security areas. Each door should be removed, cleaned, sanded, patched and restained before re-instal1ation.
5. Window:; nave been abused and replaced in so many cases, that new windows matching in appearance and character replacing the old should not be ruled out. Bringing the existing windows up to the standard desired, might be more costly to the owner.

ROOM 108 MISCELLANEOUS
Room 108 is the most detailed space in the original design for the structure. The walls are decorated with wood molding and wood panelling with plaster and wood lath above. The detailing for the walls is continuous around the inside perimeter of the original space. The original space is violated with an inferior selection of wall materials. The wood detailing on the wall is removed to accomodate a new gypsum wall board/metal stud walls. A drop ceiling is placed to accommodate mechanical systems within the ceiling space. Carpeting was laid in some areas. Doors were standard wood doors with no likeness at all to the original selection. All of these new additions should be removed completely before maintenance on this space can begin. Room 102 is similar in its problem, but because of Room 108's detailing it makes the problem more serious. Room 108 should be retained as was originally intended by the original architects attention for detail.
