In March of 2013, Munger started discussion with the University of New Haven for design and construction of a new, 5,000 SF, building to house a state of the art math lab, and lab/classroom space for the university’s Fire Science Program. The biggest challenge was to complete the building in time for the new school year to start on August 9, 2013. Before construction could begin Munger and the University’s design team needed to design and secure all local zoning and building permits and remove a condemned storage barn on the property that presented environmental concerns.
The single story, structural steel frame building includes high tech metal siding, a membrane roof, high performance glass with sun shades, and full interior fit outs of lab space, and classrooms incorporating state of the art media equipment.
The first concrete footings were poured on May 9 and the building was turned over to UNH 90 days later on August 9, 100% complete.
“On behalf of The University of New Haven, I am passing along my sincerest thanks to the Munger team for the successful design and construction of our new academic building now known as North Hall. The building is in full operation and I have received many compliments that include both appearance and quality. However, the most prevalent comment is the awe expressed with how quickly we were able to construct such a high quality facility. You should be very proud and we are very fortunate to have partnered with the high quality team at Munger Construction. I hope we can partner again on future projects here at the University.”
