Carnegie Mellon University / Heinz College Addition

 

Location:  Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Size: 31,000 SF

Program Elements:
New teaching, learning and classroom spaces
150 seat auditorium, large classrooms, student lounge and quiet study space, as well as faculty research centers and offices
 

This project establishes a glass roofed infill addition between two existing structures and re-allocates uses within Heinz College’s Hamburg Hall, resulting in more than 31,000 sf of new program space for the College. New teaching, learning and classroom spaces inserted between the older structures and enclosed with a curving glass roof structure provide identity to the College’s facilities and programs along with an environment consistent with the academic philosophy.

The addition, along with substantial renovations to Hamburg Hall, will provide new spaces which include a 150 seat auditorium, large classrooms, student lounge and quiet study space, as well as faculty research centers and offices. Building system upgrades will address code compliance issues, accessibility and human comfort.

The project is being constructed in multiple phases. Phase two, which includes a classroom addition, courtyard, and common space renovations, has been completed. Once the entire the project is concluded, it will provide Heinz College with the quantity and quality of space necessary to fulfill its educational goals into the future.

The entire project is designed with sustainable solutions for the benefit of the occupants, the University, and the environment. Completed Phase two is certified LEED Gold and the remaining phases are on track for LEED certification.
