Andover Hall is the center of academic, administrative and student life at the Harvard Divinity School. The historic building houses classrooms, a lecture hall, a multi-faith chapel, and faculty and staff offices. ABA completed a Master Plan that assessed the existing conditions, established a preservation approach, studied program needs, and developed a phased plan for renovation and expansion. As the first project following the Master Plan, ABA renovated classrooms in Andover Hall, introducing new technology and flexible furnishings to accommodate traditional and emerging teaching methodologies. This project has received LEED Gold.
Continuing its planning for Andover Hall, ABA completed a study to achieve Net Zero Energy status for the building, dramatically reducing the energy consumption of the renovation and expansion design and exceeding consumption with on-site energy production.
