Gutman Library

Harvard University
Cambridge, Massachusetts

The Monroe C. Gutman library provides education and research support for the Harvard Graduate School of Education (HUGSE) community. Gutman Library first opened its doors in 1972 and was designed to accommodate 300,000 volumes of books.  As time and technology has changed, so have the needs of the school community.  The library underwent a 34,700 SF renovation to provide a more vibrant atmosphere. As the design-assist mechanical contractor, TG Gallagher worked with Harvard in an IPD-style arrangement to provide all the HVAC, plumbing, and fire protection services. The project was completed in phases so the library could remain open and fully operational during construction. Close coordination between the trades and operations staff was critical to minimize disruption to students and staff. Upon completion, the newly renovated space was welcomed by the entire HUGSE community as a new focal point of the campus.
