Harvard University, Sackler Building Renovation
Renovation of a 59,000 sf museum including design studios, classrooms, art-making spaces, faculty offices, and a lecture hall. The purpose of the infrastructure upgrade was to address operations and maintenance issues and to perform needed capital renewal. Energy modeling and life cycle cost analysis were used to select systems that best met Harvard’s cost and sustainability goals, which included all new high performance HVAC, high performance lighting and power systems, bringing the fire alarm and sprinkler systems up to code, and plumbing systems. The building facade and prominent interior areas like the central stair/entrance lobby were preserved and restored.
