Renovation of Grissom Hall
This project was a comprehensive renovation of Grissom Hall, originally built in 1906, to increase the capacity of the facility's lab, classroom and office spaces, without increasing the building's gross area. The building houses the Industrial Engineering Department of the College of Engineering at Purdue.
Space usage improvements, such as combining areas for student-oriented services into one floor of the building, and designating unassigned, shared work stations for undergraduate and graduate students, were employed.
The mechanical, electrical, plumbing, fire protection, lighting and telecommunications systems throughout the building were completely replaced with modern, efficient systems while the building was reconfigured to achieve the University's College of Engineering expansion plan.
Sustainable design practices, such as variable volume heating and cooling systems, dynamic HVAC controls for demand ventilation and discharge air temperature/pressure reset sequences, and occupancy and day lighting controls for the building's LED lighting, are integrated into the building.
Loftus Engineering was responsible for all mechanical, electrical and telecommunications engineering services for the project.
