To accommodate the increasing student population, Bowdoin College sought to build two new freshmen dormitory buildings.  The brick-clad dorms provide rooms for 160 students and offer common lounge space in generous hallways.  The buildings feature several sustainable building enclosure features, including large windows and skylights to provide natural daylighting and white roofs to reflect sunlight and minimize cooling during hot weather.  SGH provided building enclosure consulting and construction administration services for the project.
