NHTI - Beverly D. Grappone Hall


nhti_-_grappone.jpgThe Beverly D. Grappone Hall Health Education and Academic Center is part of New Hampshire Technical Institute (NHTI) located in Concord, New Hampshire. The 30,500 square foot building, completed in October of 2009, is the new home of NHTI's nursing program and consists of classrooms, faculty offices, an auditorium, a computer lab, lecture halls, conference rooms, a study lounge, nurse stations and a clinical resource center. This three-story complex is certified LEED® Silver by the United States Green Building Council.

Project Scope

Yeaton Associates, Inc. performed the mechanical, plumbing, fire protection, sustainable and energy engineering for the Beverly D. Grappone Hall Health Education and Academic Center at New Hampshire Technical Institute in Concord, New Hampshire. The overall project scope was to design an energy-efficient, state-of-the-art building that incorporated the infrastructure needs of NHTI's nursing program.

Project Result

The mechanical building systems in the Beverly D. Grappone Hall Health Education and Academic Center include a high-efficiency chiller plant, a condensing gas boiler plant and lab ventilation systems. Detailed load calculations and energy modeling were completed to properly size equipment by Yeaton Associates, Inc. A key part of the design process and the success of this project was continual communication with facilities' personnel, end-user occupants, administration and our design partners. This allowed the team to achieve a balance among energy efficiency, construction costs and occupant comfort along with maintaining a focus on achieving LEED® Silver certification by the United States Green Building Council.
