University of Pennsylvania – Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
This project included renovation of two floors and a balcony. Modernizing this 100 year old historic building posed many challenges. The first floor consisted of a classroom, bathroom, electrical/AV room and mechanical room. The second floor consisted of a speaking hall with a stage, green room and event room for catering. The 8,000 cfm AHU in the mechanical room served both floors and additional provisions were made to serve the balcony by a future AHU in the Labs/Classroom Phase. The chilled water, heating hot water for VAV reheat, and glycol heating hot water for the AHU preheat coil were all roughed-in in the Phase 1 project. A high-end AV system was also installed.
