This five-story dining hall and dormitory renovation included a complete renovation of the basement and first floor, including the main food preparation area and the main dining hall. Minor ADA modifications were made to the remainder of the building. The mechanical scope included re-configuration and removal of radiant baseboard heat, complete reconfiguration of steam piping and the addition of a new steam heat air handling unit. A cooling tower was also integrated for evaporative direct / indirect cooling of these areas. The addition of a major serving and prep kitchen required the installation of an extensive exhaust system as well. Seven state-of-the-art exhaust hoods that utilize Ultraviolet Light air cleaning technology were installed along with rooftop centrifugal exhaust fans and rooftop acoustical equipment screen walls to minimize the noise, smell, and sound impact to the dorm residents.


“Without exception, I found the entire JHL staff to be experienced, well-trained, courteous, and dedicated to the success of my project. They met every challenge on this difficult and fast-paced project with a flexibility and a ‘can-do’ attitude. I highly recommend JHL Constructors to anyone who is in need of quality work.”
