WHITNEY M. YOUNG JOB CORPS CENTER
Project Scope: Historic Renovation
Historic Berea Hall, originally a high school, was constructed in 1911 and now serves as the administration building for the Whitney Young Job Corps Center. The scope of work for this 10,000 square foot building included interior improvements, replacement of certain mechanical and electrical systems, asbestos abatement and ADA improvements. The design solution included creating perimeter drainage, foundation waterproofing, roof replacement and lightning protection.
Since this building is on the National Register of Historic Places, special care was given to meeting the renovation guidelines of the Department of the Interior in the execution of this project.
The scope of work in the dormitory renovation of Eckstein Norton Hall included a new mechanical system, electrical upgrades, lead paint survey and asbestos removal, new roof, new plumbing supply lines and fixtures, and plumbing repairs to waste and vent lines. The exterior walls in the dormitory rooms were furred to provide for new insulation and the dormitory has new ceilings and floor finishes. The mechanical system upgrade was based on a life cycle cost analysis performed by our mechanical consultant.
