Dormitory Upgrades

Improving Comfort and Energy Efficiency in Three Campus Residence Halls

Under an indefinite delivery contract with the University of Maryland College Park, Mueller Associates designed numerous MEP upgrades to three 115,000-square-foot residence halls on the North Campus. Each renovation was phased and fast-tracked to enable construction to take place over the summer, enabling students to return to the halls in the fall.

The improvements to the eight-story buildings—Denton Hall, Easton Hall, and Elkton Hall—included installation of new fan coil unit systems; new room convenience outlets; demolition of the building heating-only system; addition of heating and cooling generation, distribution, and piping systems derived from the central chilled water and district steam services; replacing domestic water booster pumps and hot water equipment; addition of a new building automation system; new energy-efficient windows, and new insulation and framing for the exterior walls.
