University of Maryland College Park, Stamp Student Union
The Adele Stamp Student Union is the activity hub of the campus at the University of Maryland. The facility houses office spaces, entertainment including bowling and billiards, a theater, retail and food service areas, two ballrooms, meeting room, student organization offices, lobbies and lounges. The 285,000 SF building was built in four parts between 1954 and 1985. The existing mechanical and electrical systems were compromised by age and overuse. The University of Maryland identified the need for renovation of the building involving phased construction of the HVAC, plumbing, fire protection, electrical power, lighting and fire alarm systems, and renovation of program spaces and circulation spaces. 15,000 SF of the building was demolished and an additional 36,000 SF was added. The renovation was divided into four major phases. The contractor occupied one phase of the renovation at a time, while the University continued to occupy the remaining three phase areas. New central secondary mechanical and electrical distribution systems were installed during the first phase. Temporary connections to existing mechanical and electrical systems were provided to maintain services.
