A Mechanical renovation to Kuhlman Hall will include the addition of a new Energy Recovery Ventilator which will solve negative air pressure problems, and utilize the temperature of the building exhaust air to temper outside air before entering the building, resulting in energy savings. Fire Alarm systems will be upgraded to meet current codes, including smoke detectors in every living space and mass notification capabilities. Existing public area lighting will be replaced with high efficiency light fixtures, and occupancy sensors. The air and light work above ceilings will mandate that corridor ceilings get replaced with new. It is also anticipated that mobile phone antennas will be installed on the roof by an outside vendor during the period of mechanical renovation. A more detailed Architectural Finishes renovation to the interior materials is anticipated in following years.
