Paine Concert Hall

Harvard University
Cambridge, Massachusetts

The Harvard University Department of Music’s 430-seat concert hall was originally constructed in 1914. The building retained much of the original mechanical system, limiting its use during the summer months. TG Gallagher was selected as the design-assist mechanical contractor to upgrade the HVAC, plumbing, and fire protection systems. A new cooling system was introduced to the music hall. The original design of the building was not designed to incorporate complex piping and ductwork systems. Routing these systems through the building while preserving and respecting the buildings unique architectural features presented a challenge. Working closely with the design team and operations staff, these challenges were resolved while providing the facility with an efficient, maintenance-friendly system.
