Caroline Hall and Motherhouse Renovation

We converted the 1950’s-era Caroline Hall (32,000 SF) to a dormitory style residence and installed all new central HVAC, plumbing and electrical systems. The work at the historic 1890’s Motherhouse building (200,000 SF) consisted primarily of upgrades to HVAC, plumbing and electrical systems, providing a new electrical service and central air conditioning.

In addition, the campus utility systems had been modified and renovated in various methods over the campus’ history, and there were virtually no existing drawings. Using our skills in fieldwork and investigative analysis, we were able to accurately document the existing systems and make sure the affected systems were addressed appropriately. It was important to us and the owner that there was no loss of utility support to the surrounding buildings. We were very successful at upgrading the systems in these buildings through three phases, without interruption to the surrounding buildings.
