Allen + Shariff provided mechanical, electrical, plumbing, fire protection, security, and technology engineering design and LEED services for Carnegie Mellon University’s Heinz College, located in Pittsburgh, PA. The multi-million dollar project was a phased renovation and included the expansion of Hamburg Hall. The renovation included interior offices, department relocation, a large multi-purpose “Classroom of the Future,” lounges, PhD office, a 150 seat enclosed glass lecture hall, meeting/study space, and a cafe.
The classroom renovation featured advanced technology upgrades to give the classrooms distance education capabilities. It also included a complete replacement of lighting and lighting controls to improve energy efficiency, controllability, and user experience, which offered integration with the AV system and daylight responsive dimming. The enclosed glass lecture hall achieved LEED Gold.
