Building envelope commissioning benefits Duke University residence hall

The Duke University Keohane Quad K-4 Residence Hall, commissioned by Hanson, benefited from building envelope commissioning. The 70,000-square-foot, five-story residence hall provides housing suites for more than 200 students and achieved LEED® Silver certification. In addition to commissioning selected mechanical (HVAC), plumbing and electrical systems, the project included air leakage and water penetration testing during construction of the $19 million project.
