UNH Kendall Hall
University of New Hampshire’s Kendall Hall was built as a lab building in the 1960’s and had operated as such until recent years, when the school began the process of adaptive reuse of its spaces. Charters Brothers was brought on board as the Construction Manager to consult with the University and the project Architect, Placework, in the design development for the occupied renovation of the third and fourth floors of the five-story structure.
The project was phased to minimize the disruption to building occupants, and the team anticipated and planned for both the inherent unknowns that come with the renovation of an eighty-year old building and the known challenges with bringing such a building in line with current code requirements. The efforts paid off as the project was able to execute the base scope of work, resolve some building-wide code and mechanical issues, and professionally clean all of the exterior windows, while staying within the established budget and schedule.
