Student Housing Addition

IMEG provided mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection engineering design services, along with construction administration, for Bryn Mawr College’s new student housing.

The project encompassed a partial demolition of an existing living-learning facility, Haffner Hall. Of the three separate buildings originally composing Haffner, two were demolished to make way for a three-story, 101-bed addition that gave Bryn Mawr College its first new student housing in nearly 45 years.

The hybrid HVAC system design included central plant- supplied 2-pipe fan coils, variable refrigerant flow (VRF) units, and two dedicated outside air systems (DOAS).

The $18 million project increased the number of beds on campus by 50 and created more study support space and student lounges.

The remaining Haffner building was renovated and re-purposed as the new Perry House, with a kitchen and common space on the first floor and residential space on the second and third floors for 25 students.
