Easton Hall Renovation

University of Maryland, College Park

Location College Park, MD

Easton Hall is a nine-story, 115,533 GSF residence hall constructed in the early 1960’s. This renovation project had several components. The first was to improve the overall energy efficiency of the facility by replacing the original aluminum windows with new, thermally-broken, high performance aluminum windows. Along the exterior walls of the resident rooms, lounges and other spaces, insulation was added at the exterior wall and a new metal stud wall with abuse resistant panels was built to enclose the new insulation. That metal stud wall also houses electrical outlets to provide for the upgraded electrical service, the second component of the renovations.

A new two-pipe, dual temperature system was installed to allow for heating and cooling of the building using fan coil units in all spaces. There are some spaces in the basement and lobby that required other types of heating and cooling beyond the fan coil units. The domestic water heating system was also replaced along with other miscellaneous mechanical room equipment.

The basement multipurpose room was renovated including the basement interior corridors. The interior and exterior entrance/exit needed ramps to replace existing stairs to meet code requirements. This, in addition to the mechanical room enlargement, required the reconfiguration of access to a janitors closet, restrooms and the construction of a new office within the meeting room.
