Conklin Hall had long suffered from a lack of ventilation and humidity control in the common areas and resident rooms. In addition, the aging air-cooled chillers were at the end of their life expectancy. The primary purpose of this project was to address these issues. The project had an extremely tight schedule with approximately three months of design time and four months for construction.
HVAC upgrades included the following: Installation of an outside air ventilation system for resident rooms and common areas, connection to existing Chiller Plant CCP-1 for chilled water supply, installation of a chilled water heat exchanger to separate the building and campus chilled water systems, and removal of the existing air-cooled chillers.
