Erdman Anthony was
selected by the University at Buffalo School of Medicine to provide MEP
engineering services in support of the Cary, Farber, and Sherman Halls
infrastructure enhancements. The complex of buildings house a combination of
research laboratories, administrative offices and classrooms for the School of
Medicine. Located on the South Campus, Farber Hall was built in 1953 (210,903
SF), Sherman Hall was built in 1955 (80,628 SF) and Cary Hall was built in 1959
(147,298 SF). In recent years the buildings have undergone various department
rehabilitation projects that have upgraded the HVAC, plumbing, and electrical
systems in these areas, but the remainder of the buildings still depends on the
original building system components. The original systems have deteriorated over
the years and are under constant repair and are beyond their useful life.
Erdman Anthony was retained as the prime professional to implement and
manage the renovation including MEP as well as architectural and hazardous
material identification. The project included replacing the existing plumbing,
HVAC, and electrical infrastructure utilizing a centralized system approach.
Plumbing systems include RO/DI water, compressed air, vacuum, sanitary sewer,
domestic water, and hot water generators. HVAC systems include steam to hot
water heat exchangers, hot water heating piping, chilled water piping, and hot
and chilled water coils in existing air handling units.
systems included provisions for emergency power circuiting, conversion of
existing emergency lighting and the replacement of the 2500A, 208V/120V
switchboard. The infrastructure replacement was designed and phased for building
occupancy during construction.
