The restructuring of the VTTI website is complete. They didn't want a redesign in the traditional sense, they wanted to update and improve what they had. I've updated the colors and textures, as well as improving the quality of HTML and CSS. The end result is a site with a simpler color palette, and improved overall functionality. The load time is down, and the design is now consistent across browsers and platforms. As a side benefit, it's also much easier to maintain and expand.
As you can see, it ended up looking a somewhat like the Alumni Association site, but that's not a big surprise. The goal with VTTI, like the Alumni Association, was to put together a site that met the University's requirements, without using their templates. They both wanted a site that was identifiably Virginia Tech, but was a little unique as well. Variations on a theme, rather than an exact match.
