Radcliffe Agassiz House

Harvard University
Cambridge, Massachusetts

Operated by the Radcliffe Institute, Harvard’s institute for advanced study, the Agassiz House was built in 1904 and houses a theater and other facilities. The theater hosts roughly 750 undergraduate productions each year. It recently underwent 33,000 SF of renovations to replace the aging building infrastructure and provide backup heat for the neighboring Schlesinger Library and Radcliffe Gymnasium. TG Gallagher installed new HVAC and plumbing systems including boilers, air handling units, and an emergency generator while the building remained occupied. As the design-assist mechanical contractor, TG Gallagher determined the best means and methods of installing mechanical systems while preserving the historic significance of the facility.
