Dartmouth College Andres Hall Achieves USGBC LEED Gold

(Hanover, NH) After a recent renovation, Dartmouth College Andres Hall residence hall has been awarded Gold Level LEED BD +C (v4) certification by the U.S. Green Building Council. The full gut renovation, completed by North Branch Construction of Concord, NH, included floor replacement, new interior walls, new mechanical/electrical/plumbing, new windows and doors, insulation, the addition of an elevator, and infrastructure for a solar hot water heating system, while also adding new study spaces and an additional 12 bed units to the residence hall. The project put a high priority on the quality of the indoor environment, optimized energy performance, water efficiency, the use of sustainable materials, and sustainable construction and waste management practices.

“The USGBC LEED Program is an important and meaningful program that considers a building’s impact in terms of its environmental performance and operating costs over the life cycle,” said Joseph H. Campbell, President of North Branch Construction. “This project is just one more example of the commitment Dartmouth College continues to make to improving their campus for students, faculty, staff, and the greater Hanover community.”

Harriman Associates of Auburn, ME was the architectural design firm on the project.
