    The Cleveland Browns’ $5 million, four-month renovation project vastly improves its Training and Administrative Complex in Berea, Ohio. The renovations are designed by the nationally recognized, integrated architecture, engineering, and technology design firm Westlake Reed Leskosky of Cleveland, Ohio, and recently recognized with an AIA Ohio 2014 Honor Award. The new workplace is a thoroughly modern space, respectful of the history and tradition of the Cleveland Browns yet forging a progressive identity for the team, via bold imagery, messaging, team branding and colors.

The Adler Center for Nursing Excellence and G-Wing Renovation at Ramapo College of New Jersey has earned ENR’s 2016 Best Project award in Higher Education/Research for the New York metropolitan region.

Selected by an independent jury of industry leaders in design and construction, the honor was announced at the publication’s award breakfast on October 13 in Manhattan.

Loring provided MEP engineering services for the project, teaming with Mitchell│Giurgola Architects, LLP; structural engineers Ysrael A. Seinuk, PC; civil engineers Langan Engineering and Environmental Services; and Cambridge Construction Management Company.

The new Adler Center, a glass clad building strategically located to maximize solar orientation, houses patient assessment and treatment simulation labs, classrooms, café, gallery and administrative areas. A high performance façade and sophisticated daylighting control system for the three-story 36,000 sf facility reduce energy consumption.

Connected to the Adler Center by a pedestrian bridge, the 1970s-built G-Wing underwent a full interior gut renovation, transformingthe 100,000 sf building into a modern research and teaching facility for the Schools of Social Science and Human Services and Theoretical and Applied Science. An exterior redesign gave the four-story structure a brighter look and new windows that maximize daylight and views of the surrounding Ramapo Mountains.

With construction occurring while the G-Wing was in use, careful planning and coordination were required to keep the existing MEP systems up and running as new systems were installed. Trailers were used to create swing space, enabling the contractor to upgrade one half of the building while the other half was still occupied.

“By enlarging the existing mechanical penthouse, we were able to accommodate new air handling units and allow the old units to continue to function. New shafts were added on each floor to route new MEP services from the mechanical room,” says Loring Executive Vice President Steven Kenah. “Through continuous communication between the design and construction team and Ramapo College, we were extremely successful in minimizing disruptions and delivering an exceptional project.”
