For this project, Princeton University sought to renovate the largest teaching space on campus, the historic McCosh 50 auditorium, located in McCosh Hall. The construction work will be performed in two phases, during the summer months of 2019 and 2020. The space will be used for classes during the academic year.
The scope of work includes correcting the floor condition, including remediation options as well as replacement of the flooring, and improvement to the acoustical conditions in the room, including options to install acoustically appropriate sound-absorbing materials where appropriate. Seating will be replaced and finishes will be improved. Systems will be upgraded including improved lighting and AV.
The project also included providing acoustical treatment to promote clear intelligibility of presentations, as well as the replacement of the existing air handling system in the lower level.
