Harrington Hall

Harrington Hall is an L-shaped, clad brick veneer, 43,000 square foot structure on the campus of SUNY Plattsburgh that was constructed in 1957. The dormitory is a three-story, coed dormitory equipped with free-standing beds, desks, and dressers, community bathrooms, a guest suite, recreational and social lounges with fireplaces on two floors, an exterior deck overlooking the river, a study lounge, and a laundry room in the basement. Delta provided overall project management, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, fire protection, fire alarm, and special system design services.

Architectural services included the addition of building insulation, elevator rehabilitation, converting odd/even stops per elevator car to allow both cars to service all floors, window replacement, addition of lounges on even floors, and kitchenettes on all lounge floors.

The mechanical scope of work included upgrades of the heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems.
