California University of Pennsylvania Coover Hall

Allen + Shariff provided MEP/FP/Technology/Security engineering design services for the Pennsylvania Department of General Services, a life cycle renovation of a 39,000 square foot space that brought the building up to code and allowed students and personnel to work in an environment conducive to learning. The general classrooms were upgraded to smart classrooms with the same specified technology that existed in the rest of the smart classrooms on campus. The entire electrical systems was replaced with 120/208 volt switchgear, and an emergency generator was installed for life-safety and miscellaneous standby equipment. The two-pipe steam heating system was replaced with new high efficiency natural gas boilers and pumps serving a water source heat pump system. The ventilation was provided by a dedicated outdoor air system (DOAS) with heat recovery, and an elevator was installed in the center of the building.
