North Branch Completes Heating System Conversion at Dartmouth College


(Hanover, NH) North Branch Construction of Concord recently completed major renovation work on the mechanical system at Dartmouth College’s Bartlett Hall. This fast-track project included the removal of all steam radiation in the building and conversion to an all hot water system. This type of heating system is being considered for implementation campus-wide and Bartlett Hall was selected as the pilot project.

The new heating system is comprised of an Energy Transfer Station (ETS) Skid manufactured by the German company Danfoss, and is the very first of its kind to be used in North America. The system had to be rigged into the basement of a building built in 1890. This project was completed on time and below budget.

Built in 1890, Bartlett Hall houses the Department of Asian and Middle Eastern Languages and Literatures (DAMELL) as well as the Arts & Humanities Resource Center. Engineering for the project was provided by Rist-Frost-Shumway, Inc. of Laconia, NH.
