PBA was tasked with improving the current building systems and components of Butterfield Hall including maximizing mechanical and electrical system efficiencies, minimize utility consumption, increased maintenance efficiencies and repairs to the roof and exterior façade for the aging student housing building, in order to meet proper code requirements.
