Improving a Campus’s Aging Infrastructure
Northfield Mount Hermon is a co-ed independent boarding school for students in grades 9-12. Founded in 1879, the distinguished school is located on the banks of the Connecticut River in western Massachusetts. Contending with an aging infrastructure, NMH commissioned BVH to replace extensive sections of steam and condensate piping.
BVH produced an infrastructure master plan the school utilized to establish manageable building and infrastructure development projects throughout the campus, including the following:
Steam and Condensate Replacement – BVH replaced the main steam and condensate piping that runs throughout campus.
Cottage Row – BVH designed steam and condensate piping to support additions to residences and re-routing of utilities. The design improved grading and storm drainage.
Admissions Building – BVH designed steam and condensate piping to support the new admissions building. The scope also included the re-route of the campus steam and condensate leg around the new building.
