HVAC Upgrade

  • A Notice of Public Hearing for an HVAC upgrade project for two of our residence halls has been issued.  
  • This proposal is to upgrade an inefficient, 50-year old heating system to improve the energy efficiency and air quality in two residence halls: Rippe and Romoser. The heating system in Rippe was upgraded last year; this project will do the same for Romoser and add air conditioning to both residence halls.  
  • The proposal includes the placement of two air-cooled chillers on a concrete pad in front of the existing generator between Romoser and Rippe Halls. The chillers and existing generator will be screened by an 11-ft. sound barrier with a fence-like design. Additionally, a wooden fence will be installed around the sound barrier, blending in with the surrounding environment.
  • Finally, evergreen trees will be planted around this equipment to further screen the area and complement the extensive new landscaping installed last fall. The College’s recommendation for equipment placement was made upon consultation with Paul Taft, the Village’s building inspector, with the goal of minimal visual and noise impacts to the surrounding residences.

 

Turf Field Project

 

The College’s plan for a full renovation and update to its 100-year-old grass field at the corner of Rose Avenue and White Plains Road is temporarily on hold. In order to get the field playable for soccer teams this fall, the College is installing two drywells and J-drains under the field to collect water and send it to the wells. The surface will then be regraded, and sod will be laid to take root over the summer months. This modified plan, which was reviewed and approved by the Village of Tuckahoe’s Building Dept., does not void the original plans approved by the Planning Board last year. Concordia is committed to upgrading this field to include the installation of the storm water containment system, synthetic turf, press box, and comfort station. The College will keep the community posted as this project progresses.
