YALE UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF MANAGEMENT

Year Completed:  2013

Contract Amount:  $15,232,000

Size:  350,000 sq. ft.

Project Features: This extraordinary world-class educational facility features a large auditorium as well as 16 classrooms and lecture halls ranging in size from 35 to 129 seats, all incorporating state-of-the-art technologies.  The building also includes a food service area, multiple libraries, various conference rooms and office spaces, an underground parking garage, and a beautiful interior courtyard.

Challenges Faced: Careful logistical planning was crucial on this relatively tight job site within a congested urban location.  Because the building itself encompassed the vast majority of space available, the result was a constricted construction area with limited site access, thereby requiring precise coordination and scheduling of deliveries.  In the interior, complex HVAC and electrical systems were installed within extremely tight ceiling spaces, causing the 3D CAD/BIM effort to be quite challenging.  Additional modeling challenges were met regarding critical layout and coordination of electrical infrastructure for classroom technologies seamlessly integrated into decorative architectural furnishings and casework.

Ducci Scope of Work: Installation of all lighting, fire alarm, security, and tele/data systems.  Provided all permanent power service and infrastructure, as well as temporary service during construction.

Engineer – Altieri Sebor Wieber, LLC

YALE UNIVERSITY RUDOLPH BUILDING RENO./ NEW HISTORY OF ART BUILDING

Year Completed:  2009

Contract Amount:  $11,300,000

Size:  114,000 sq. ft. of existing space, 87,000 sq. ft. addition

Project Features: The new addition of the Jeffrey Loria Center for the History of Art served as a beautiful compliment to the Rudolph Building, originally constructed in 1963 and designed by Paul Rudolph, former Dean of Yale's Architecture School. Charles Gwathmey, lead designer of the new addition, was a student of Paul Rudolph at Yale in the 1960s. The entire package of custom light fixtures was a replica honoring Paul Rudolph's original design.

Ducci Scope of Work: Installed all normal/emergency electrical systems for entire facility, including medium voltage switchgear and transformers. Complete fire alarm system. State-of-the-art communication systems. Navigated all of the system raceways through a 9 story, 37 level building with (in some cases) ceilings no more than 6'4" tall. Gained access to areas with 3' thick, multi-level concrete walls and partitions. Installed modern systems and energy efficient technologies (which achieved LEED Gold Certification), while still maintaining the original design intent. Installed unique, specific, custom fixtures within the older, complex structure. Ducci won the confidence of Architects Gwathmey Siegel & Associates due to our attention to their design and detail.

YALE UNIVERSITY FORESTRY AND ENVIRONMENTAL STUDIES

Year Completed:  2009

Contract Amount:  $5,100,000

Size:  56,467 sq. ft.

Project Features: Interior space includes 50 faculty/staff offices, 3 classrooms, the 175 seat Burke Auditorium, the Ordway Learning Center, and the Knobloch Environment Center. This building achieved a LEED Platinum Rating, with features such as: 50% less energy consumption than conventional buildings (as per the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air Conditioning), a 100KW photovoltaic array sized to generate ¼ of Kroon's electricity, a water recycling system projected to reduce potable water consumption by 75%, and (certified) sustainably harvested wood used in all paneling, trim, and roof decking. Half of the red oak paneling used was obtained from Yale-Myers, the school's forest in Connecticut.

Ducci Scope of Work: Installed multiple systems including lighting, power, security, tele/data, and photovoltaic on this tight site with extremely limited storage. All ceilings (and many concrete walls) were finished, so no exposed conduit/wiremold was permitted. Layout and placement of sleeves/device boxes, etc., was also critical. Installed the 102KW PV system on the south side of a 4+ story roof and all equipment associated with various electric closets.
