Central Connecticut State University

Hilltop Cafe

Description

Hilltop Cafe is a brand new dining facility for Central Connecticut State University. The facility’s three dining rooms, equipped with projection and AV equipment, allow for dining as well as social gatherings and campus events.

Kohler Ronan’s MEP/FP designs comply with guidelines for existing campus facilities and the CT High Performance Building Standard. Energy saving strategies include variable volume kitchen hood exhaust, day lighting control, demand control ventilation, a condensing boiler, and dual variable air volume rooftop units designed to track load as population and demand vary. Also within the project’s scope were Information Technology and Security Systems designs.
