EMCOR installs mechanical systems at Harvard University

EMCOR Services Northeast will replace two main indoor air handler units located in Robinson Hall at Harvard University, Cambridge, Mass.

Norwalk, Conn. — EMCOR Services Northeast will replace two main indoor air handler units located in Robinson Hall at Harvard University, Cambridge, Mass. The hall, which was built in 1900, is one of the central buildings at Harvard.

Located in the basement mechanical area of the hall, the air handler units provide heat, air conditioning and fresh air for ventilation from the University's power plant steam and chilled water systems. The replacement of the units will occur in two phases, allowing Robinson Hall, which houses the history department and classrooms, to remain open with at least 50% cooling or heating ventilation during the entire project.

“As the largest provider of mobile facilities services in New England, we combine leading-edge, technology-based delivery with exceptional client care to meet the standard and mission-critical needs of our clients, many of whom we've worked with for years,” said Phillip Megna, president of EMCOR Services Northeast. “We look forward to working with Harvard University and using our knowledge to create a more comfortable and learning-conductive environment for the students, faculty and staff.”
