Nearly 100 years ago the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill embarked on a multi-million-dollar expansion campaign that created a second quad and added nearly 20 buildings to the growing campus. Almost a century later, McKim & Creed helped energize three of those facilities with updated heating and cooling systems, energy-efficient windows and improved fire systems.
Everett Residence Hall was built in 1926 and houses 96 students. Stacy Hall was completed in 1938 and is home to 93 students. Lewis, the oldest of the three, has 95 residents and was built in 1924.
McKim & Creed brought new energy to these dorms and new comfort and safety features to the students who live there. Each dorm received upgraded HVAC systems with direct digital controls, new energy-efficient windows that meet the university’s design standards, and addressable fire alarm systems that help pinpoint the exact location of a fire. The project also included hazardous material abatement.
These improvements brought 21st century energy to 20th century facilities.
