Suffield Academy Dormitory



Suffield, CT

This project involved the mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems design for a new 18,000 square foot Dormitory building at Suffield Academy with the Campus Health Center Located on the ground floor and four faculty apartments. The different occupancies have varying requirements causing the need for different mechanical systems for each.

The wood construction with limited ceiling and shaft space made coordination and tight space planning essential. The different systems caused the space planning and coordination even more challenging.

The Health Center has ten private rooms along with examination rooms offices and a nurses station. Each private room is separately zoned controlled by a direct digital control system that is tied into a campus wide control system.
