BOGER HALL AT WESLEYAN UNIVERSITY RECEIVES LEED PLATINUM RATING FROM THE US GREEN BUILDING COUNCIL
Designed by Newman Architects, Boger Hall is only the eighth building in Connecticut to receive this prestigious designation. It is the first to have received it under the USGBC’s new, most stringent version of ‘LEED for New Construction and Major Renovation’. The renovation repurposed an historic gem for University service. Originally designed in the 1930’s by McKim, Meade, and White, the building housed 14 squash courts in a stately Neoclassical structure. The adaptive reuse provides a new home for the University’s Career Resource Center, its College of Letters, and additional Art History spaces—as well as new seminar and classroom spaces. The innovative sustainable design strategies were developed under the leadership of the client, Wesleyan University; Newman Architects; Sustainable Design Consultant Sage Design and Consulting; and MEP Consultant van Zelm Heywood and Shadford. Energy Modeling was provided by Karpman Consulting, LLC. The project’s design has received two distinct design awards: a Merit Award from the American Institute of Architects, Connecticut, and the 2012 preservation award from Middletown, Connecticut Historic Preservation Board.
