Kenyon College Peirce Hall
Gambier, OH

Kenyon College is the oldest private institution of higher education in Ohio and was founded in 1824. As part of a master plan that was unveiled in 2004, extensive renovations have been undertaken to renovate and improve the Peirce Dining Hall in order to accommodate changes in the dining needs of the student population.

Project Features:

Computational Fluid dynamics analysis Telecommunications design

Dining for 1,700 students

Energy Studies

Innovations and Solutions:

Syska engineers were challenged to provide balanced cooling and other MEP Systems to Peirce’s Great Hall without changing the extensive wood finishes and fretwork of the Great Hall interior. They were able to meet the challenge by conducting CFD analysis and enclosing ductwork and piping within a discovered attic space.
