Corby Hall University of Notre Dame
Corby Hall is a new $25 million residence hall being constructed on the University of Notre Dame campus to replace an older structure, also called Corby Hall, that was demolished in early 2018. The new facility, designed to meet LEED v4 Silver certification, includes three floors of residential apartments as well as gathering spaces, a full commercial kitchen, and service spaces. Primary Engineering’s role has been to provide full MEP and IT engineering design services as well as construction administration services during the project.
In 2008, the University of Notre Dame adopted a policy requiring all new campus construction to follow LEED standards. For the new Corby Hall, the heat and domestic hot water will be supplied from the campus steam plant, so we were challenged with designing LEED-certified building systems that meet the design standards while staying within the project budget. The project is expected to be completed in 2020.
