The shoring design elements of the University of New Hampshire James Hall project allowed for not only an increased institutional building design, but also the restoration of various historic architectural elements. The $34.2 million renovation increased the science building’s size by 14,000-SF, using 75% of the existing exterior walls, floors and roof. Historic architectural elements of the building were salvaged and restored, maintaining the character of the building. This project, which was completed in 2010, became the first LEED Gold certified building on the Durham, NH campus.
Summit provided the shoring design scheme for this major renovation project, which then allowed Shawmut Construction and Design to save tens of thousands of dollars in construction costs. Another unique element of this project was that the design called for the removal of large, riveted attic truss design members, which thereby allowed for construction below the attic floor to continue, reducing the projects down time. EYP Architecture and Design provided design services for this massive renovation project.
