Project Highlights and Results

  • ASHRAE Excellence in Engineering Award; First-Place: Chapter.
  • Completed 8-year phased project while building was occupied.
  • Design solution to convert the building to classroom and office spaces addressed the following significant challenges:
    • Building holds National Landmark Status
    • Building listed on National Registrar of Historic Places
    • Poor comfort and indoor air quality with no central cooling
    • No central system to introduce outside air
    • Poorly controlled steam heating system
      • No horizontal ductwork at all in the building
      • City of Chicago ventilation standards would have required exhaust risers and ductwork too large to fit within building spaces.
