Completed in the winter of 2019, this university project consisted of a transformative renovation of the existing campus center centrally located on the university’s New Haven campus. Specifically, work on the 54,500 square-foot building included a café, lounge/game room, bookstore, offices, fitness center, and weight rooms. Highlights of the space are a beautiful fire place serving the ground floor lounge areas and a relaxing roof top terrace with views of the larger campus.
Kohler Ronan’s project scope included comprehensive mechanical, electrical, plumbing, fire protection, and technology design systems. Regarding building systems, the project scope incorporated the careful integration of existing and newly installed systems throughout the facility. Additionally, asbestos abatement, an upgraded fire alarm system, AHU replacement, and a review and subsequent upgrade of several existing systems were necessary. Finally, the roof of the former campus center was replaced in conjunction with this extensive renovation.
