Student Center Expansion
To meet its growing enrollment, Rowan University is expanding its Chamberlain Student Center by adding gathering and event spaces, meeting rooms, media rooms, a prep kitchen, coffee house, and amphitheater, as well as enhancements to the outdoor plaza and terrace.
IMEG provided mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection engineering design services, along with construction administration, for the 28,500-sf student center expansion.
The scope of the project included the mechanical and electrical systems required for the new addition, as well as system interface connections where the two buildings connect. HVAC system selection was based on a rigorous life cycle analysis incorporating comparison system energy models, first cost, operating cost, maintenance cost and inflation, and interest projections. The building is being constructed to meet current energy codes and perform at a LEED Silver level.
