on Tuck Mall at
The new Fahey/McLane
Residence Halls on Tuck Mall were designed by Atkins
Olshin Lawson-Bell of Philadelphia. These two halls
joined by a well appointed and comfortable two story
common gathering space are designed in the Dartmouth
tradition of quality materials, distinct Dartmouth
architecture, enhanced by the outstanding design talents
of this fine firm, and so designed utilizing LEED
accreditation design standards of sustainability. As is
the case in each Dartmouth College capital improvement
project, the Tuck Mall Residence Halls were designed and
built anticipating 100 years of use by the students and
staff at Dartmouth.
This project earned a Gold
LEED rating from USGBC, making it one of the first to
enjoy that prestigious accolade.
The 70,000 square foot
residence hall complex was designed to accommodate 160
student beds, common spaces, and utility areas.
Constructed as a masonry
bearing pre-cast concrete plank structure, the facility
is enveloped with an exterior wall section comprising
polyurethane spray foam insulation, appropriate air
cavity and drainage plane, and a Dartmouth college blend
brick and granite exterior.
The roof is a raised-rib
copper sloped/gabled roof finely appointing the brick
exterior and providing the 100 year service life
Dartmouth requires of their architects and engineers.
The wonderfully landscaped
grounds are designed by Saucier & Flynn and tout a LEED
approved rain garden for on site filtering of rain and
storm water run-off.
The many grand attributes of this site
and building gave PML Project Management the envious
privilege of managing a project delivery process that
few ever have opportunity to participate in.
