Project summary

This major renovation of Hamilton Hall, a 48,000 square foot student dormitory at the Harvard Business School, is the first since the masonry building’s construction in 1926. Construction was completed in the summer of 2006. The project used USGBC LEED version 2.1, and is awaiting USGBC Response to confirm certification. The project is a successful example of a green renovation project. The project was able to implement systems with significant energy, materials, and water savings.
