$7 million renovation of college dormitory is underway

About 90 percent of the work will be mechanical, electrical and plumbing related, Raudenbush said. The circa-1949 building has no central air conditioning and an old steam heating system which will be replaced by a geothermal heating and cooling system. Mostly cloudy…isolated thunderstorms developing this afternoon. High 82F. Winds SSE at 10 to 20 mph. Chance of rain 30%.. The Cullen dorms, comprised of Wicomico, Somerset and Worcester halls, are undergoing a year-long renovation. Our photograph was taken Thursday, June 21. Scheibel Construction workers clear the north side of the Cullen dormitory building to begin digging a well for the new geothermal heating and cooling system. Our photograph was taken Thursday, June 21. After the renovations are complete, the now-razed north side of the Cullen dormitory building will feature a redesigned landscape. Our photograph was taken Thursday, June 21. CHESTERTOWN — Washington College has begun a year-long renovation of the Cullen dormitory, which is comprised of Wicomico, Somerset and Worcester halls. The renovations began earlier this month and will be “substantially complete” by May 2019, said Reid Raudenbush, construction project manager in the college’s Buildings and Grounds Department. The total price tag — which includes costs for the contractor, Scheibel Construction of Calvert County, the design and “soft costs” such as permits and fees for moving furniture — is about $7 million, Raudenbush said in a telephone interview Monday. “It’s an efficient way of providing heating and cooling, and it fits with the (college) president’s overall goal of increased efficiency,” he said. Other changes include installing fans in the attic to circulate fresh air, humidity control and new bathrooms. The bathrooms will be torn out and will receive new fixtures, plumbing, and water and exhaust lines. The exterior of the Cullen dorm itself will remain unchanged, save for new windows and paint. There will be changes to the laundry rooms and hallways. The halls on the first and second floors will be opened up so residents can move between buildings again. The hallways were sealed up in the mid-1980s, Raudenbush said. “The main thing is we’re getting this building ready for another 20 to 25 years of service,” he said. So far, the sidewalks and trees on the north side of the building have been razed in preparation for the geothermal wells. Once the wells are drilled, the walkways will be rebuilt and a landscape architect will replant trees. Baltimore-based Hord Coplan Macht Inc. will design a new plan for the landscape. The college’s Department of Public Safety is being displaced from its headquarters in the basement of Wicomico Hall. The office moved to the lower level of the Casey Academic Center two weeks ago and will remain there for the duration of the project. Kent Hall, the dormitory adjacent to Cullen, was renovated last year as part of a larger project for the older dorms. The changes made to Cullen will be similar to the renovations in Kent, Raudenbush said. Although three other dorms also need renovations, the Cullen dorm experienced a system failure which required more immediate attention. The 1950s-era heating system began to fail two years ago and required emergency repairs. Those repairs were temporary, Raudenbush said. “The piping began to fail in Worcester and almost all of the lines had deteriorated or crumbled. It was almost like paper,” he said. After the Cullen project is finished, Reid Hall, the Hill dorms and Minta Martin Hall are due for complete renovations. Minta Martin is receiving new windows this summer because the existing windows keep falling out, but there are other problems with the building that can be resolved with renovation in a few years, Raudenbush said. When the time comes, he said, it will be a “toss-up” to decide which building to work on. The next renovation will be decided by prioritizing which building has the greatest needs. Even though Cullen is offline for the school year, there will be room for the students on campus. The college built Corsica Hall two years ago to accommodate students that would be displaced by the ongoing renovations, Raudenbush said. Corsica can house up to 112 students, whereas Cullen can house 100.  Keep it Clean. Please avoid obscene, vulgar, lewd, racist or sexually-oriented language. PLEASE TURN OFF YOUR CAPS LOCK.
