Reynolds Consulting Engineers was hired by the University of Pittsburgh to provide building commissioning services at its Johnstown campus.
Nursing and Health Sciences Building
The new Nursing and Health Sciences Building on the Johnstown Campus is a 26,000-square-foot facility that houses the expanding nursing program. With 11 laboratories for chemistry, biology, and nursing; six faculty offices; and two seminar classrooms spread over two floors, the facility will meet the educational needs of a large majority of Pitt-Johnstown’s overall student population, which includes not only the students who major in those areas, but also those who complete coursework in areas as required for graduation. The building has a sustainable/green design that is expected to earn LEED certification, thereby becoming the first LEED-certified building on the Johnstown campus.
Murtha Center and Engineering & Science Building
The new Murtha Center is an 8,000-square-foot addition on the north side of Krebs Hall. It consists of a multipurpose room, Murtha Museum and Exhibit Space, a veterans’ lounge, and offices for outreach. It includes a security system, full broadcast capabilities, special tribute to Mr. and Mrs. Murtha, and a memorial garden.
The E&S Building renovation encompassed 65,400 square feet of labs, classrooms, offices, storage, and lounges. Systems commissioned include laboratory HVAC equipment, chilled water systems, steam distribution systems, and building automation systems.
