George Washington Manor

Renovating a historic space - carefully

Whether or not a building is designated as a historic landmark has a major impact on our engineering design. In this case, the building was built in 1740 – certainly historic. 

When the owner of the George Washington Manor decided to convert the building, from a catering hall to a combined restaurant and catering hall, we provided the engineering design. The project involved revising the MEP systems to enhance comfort and comply with the current restaurant code. The beautiful wooden beams in the dining area had to stay, so our systems were designed around them.

With respect to the mechanical systems, we designed the replacement of nine existing air conditioning units and associated ductwork. We also designed a new boiler, HVAC air distribution system, and local controls. 

Our electrical design services included electrical lighting and power drawings, as well as specifications for telecommunications raceways and support components.

We also provided MEP design for the kitchen equipment in both the main kitchen and the basement prep kitchen. We designed kitchen exhaust hoods, including make-up air units.
