project description

This project included the demolition of the existing 1101 Café and Terry Hall, and the construction of two new residential buildings named Maple Hall and Terry Hall. These new eight-story residential buildings include five wood-frame stories of housing, above a concrete plinth, consisting of two-bedroom suites, all with private bathrooms. The lower two floors of each building are occupied by housing and food service administration offices, common space for students, and some additional two-2 bedroom suites. A below grade parking garage connected to the Lander Hall garage and the Lander Hall loading dock extends below the new Maple and Terry residence halls. The two new buildings total approximately 440,000 square feet, with a target bed count of 1150 beds.

services provided

Wilson Jones Commissioning was retained to provide design, construction and acceptance/closeout phase commissioning authority services. Services included reviewing the Owner design narrative, OPR, DD and CD, and providing integrated commissioning specifications for inclusion into the construction bid documents.  WJCx worked collaboratively with the Owner, GC/CM, MC/EC and design team to develop a commissioning plan and commissioning schedule to keep the team up to date on goals and responsibilities. WJCx also created System Manuals and Functional Performance Tests to ensure systems were operating properly and system function was well documented. At the end of the project, LEED documentation for the fundamental and enhanced commissioning credits was completed and submitted.
