Originally built in 1947, Brown Hall is an iconic, historic space on Concordia’s Campus. The four-story structure houses around 260 men and women. We were asked to create a new mechanical system to improve ventilation and indoor air quality.
The previous system had air conditioning in the public spaces, with little natural air flow. We updated the building to get fresh air and be up to date with current ventilation codes. The building’s humidity was not controlled, with moisture causing problems and discomfort to the residents. With our new systems, the building was able to heat and cool effectively, while keeping moisture at a minimum.
