  • Project Overview

    Maple Hall is a notable addition to the California State University, Northridge (CSUN) campus, introducing a 3-story building and atrium spanning 62,475 square feet. As the first new academic classroom building since Chaparral Hall in 2009, it represents a $43.3 million investment towards enhancing educational facilities. Located south of Sierra Hall and adjacent to significant campus landmarks, Maple Hall addresses the critical need for additional classrooms and lecture halls. Through a collaborative design-build approach, the 24-month project opened to students in late 2023. Aiming for LEED Gold Certification the building prioritizes natural lighting, flexible spaces, and incorporates the latest in audio-visual technology.

  • Solution

    P2S provided MEP and fire protection design services, focusing on creating an environment that emphasizes user comfort, energy efficiency, and operational flexibility. The HVAC systems are engineered for adaptability to future modifications, ensuring indoor environmental quality and optimizing energy use. Space heating is being provided via a heat recovery chiller to promote electrification, maximize efficiency and reduce overall greenhouse gas emissions. Electrical systems feature energy-efficient LED lighting and controls, comprehensive power distribution, and emergency systems designed to current campus standards for durability and ease of maintenance. Domestic hot water needs are met by the Air Source Heat Pump (ASHP) to promote electrification and eliminate combustible natural gas from the facility. This approach not only serves immediate functional requirements but also aligns with sustainability goals and code compliance.

    By replacing 55 classrooms in Maple Hall with state-of-the-art learning spaces, the new facility significantly contributes to CSUN's educational mission. It introduces large, adaptable classrooms and collaborative spaces bathed in natural light, fundamentally enhancing the campus's learning environment. The project's design and execution reflect a commitment to fostering active learning, collaboration, and environmental stewardship.
