450 Columbus Boulevard Consolidated Government Offices Hartford, Connecticut
A Kohler Ronan MEP/FP assessment formed the basis for recommendations, budget, and design for the renovations to two multi-story office towers located in downtown Hartford. Having been vacant for several years before being purchased by the State of Connecticut, the buildings underwent nearly a complete gut of each of the 26 floors including new toilet cores, new outside air pretreatment systems, controls, and floor air handling units. The only systems to remain were main duct distribution, electrical cores, and floor lighting. To save money and time, the existing lighting fixtures were removed, re-lamped, and reinstalled. Further, a more efficient layout allowed us to reduce the quantity of fixtures by over 30%. Design of this 600,000 square-foot project was completed in multiple phases, and each tower was designed and renovated separately to accommodate partial occupancy throughout construction. The project has allowed the State to consolidate its many departments and nearly 2,200 employees into a beautifully renovated facility.
