Lohe Hall

Upon the completion of a 20-year lease agreement, Birdworks LLC, a subsidiary of Cardinal Construction, has gifted Löhe Hall to Wartburg College.

The 168-bed residence hall was built by Cardinal Construction and opened in 2004. The building’s floors are arranged in suites for one, three, four, six or eight students, with sleeping rooms grouped around a small living area with bath and shower facilities centrally located to accommodate several suites. Cardinal Commons, a multipurpose atrium, connects Löhe with Grossmann Hall.

Scott Leisinger, vice president for institutional advancement, is grateful for the generosity of Cardinal Construction.

“As a residential campus, Löhe Hall is more than just a building; it represents our commitment to creating an enriching environment where our students can live and learn,” Leisinger said. “For 20 years, Löhe Hall has provided Knights with a vibrant and supportive community where they can feel at home on our campus, and we are excited that future generations will have that same opportunity. We appreciate the leaders at Cardinal Construction for believing in and investing in the success of our students and the future of Wartburg College.”

The partnership between Wartburg College and Cardinal Construction spans several decades, with Cardinal leading efforts to renovate and build several structures on campus, including the construction of the Wartburg-Waverly Sports & Wellness Center, renovation and addition to the McCoy Living & Learning Center and Clinton Hall, and most recently the historic renovation of Slife and Vollmer halls.

“Cardinal Construction is pleased to gift this asset valued at more than $5 million to Wartburg College in support of its distinctive living and learning environment,” said Brandon Schoborg, CEO of Cardinal Construction.
