Dunham has been providing mechanical and electrical engineering services at St. Cloud State University’s campus for 15 years. Recently our experience has included some major campus renovations at Hill and Case Halls, Shoemaker East and West Halls, and Eastman Hall. In addition to these major renovations, Dunham is also providing mechanical and electrical engineering services for various smaller projects around the campus. This includes studies, remodels, campus security upgrades, commissioning services, as well as mechanical, electrical, and plumbing upgrades.
Eastman Hall, Health Services Renovation
In an effort to consolidate the various health services departments and programs, as well as to provide larger and more accommodating spaces for the students and faculty, the University renovated Eastman Hall to be the new home of the Health Services department. The renovated facility houses the Student Health Services, Counseling and Psychological Services, Human Performance Lab, and UChoose Drug and the Alcohol Treatment program. Our engineers designed the mechanical and electrical systems serving the 57,850 SF facility, which was originally built in 1929. The $11.4M renovation creates space for classrooms, offices, a pharmacy, diagnostic imaging, and enhanced laboratory space to support clinic functions.
Shoemaker Hall Renovation
Shoemaker Hall was originally built in 1915 and is home to 422 student residents. The goal of this project was to enhance the student experience by updating the building infrastructure various amenities. This included private bathrooms, student study lounges, and kitchens on each floor. Our team provided mechanical and electrical engineering services for the 83,000 SF renovation of the East and West wings of the residence hall. The two halls are connected by a 4,680 SF commons area. Our team designed lighting upgrades, a new fire alarm system, and major plumbing and HVAC system upgrades.
Campus-wide Surveillance System
With a goal of improving student, faculty, and visitor safety, Dunham was hired to design a new surveillance system that modified and enhanced the call-for-assistance system throughout the campus. Our design included a new Closed Circuit Television system that is incorporated into the new surveillance system.
