New Hampshire firm announces completion of the Tufts University CoHo Adaptive Reuse Student Housing Project
SALEM, N.H. – Trident Project Advantage Group is pleased to announce the completion of the Tufts University CoHo Project in Medford, MA. Trident Project Advantage Group was engaged by Tufts University during the development and construction phases of their environmentally designed CoHo student housing project.
Serving as the Owner’s Project Manager, Trident worked as an extension of the University’s Capital Program department to transform 13 turn-of-the-century residential homes into student housing facilities providing 140 new beds with 2 new community rooms in support of Tufts’ on-campus student housing initiative.
The scope of renovations included structural modifications and additions, the creation of several accessible apartments, improved insulation and other sustainable upgrades, replacement of MEP systems, addition of new fire protection systems, security access systems, new kitchens and renovated bathrooms. This work was completed while preserving the exterior facades to maintain the fabric of the neighborhood. Several of the homes center around a new village green with significant landscape and hardscape improvements that has become the center of the CoHo community.
The project also included construction of a new 4,700 SF, 4 story 3-unit sustainable showcase residential building that includes a 10.5 KW solar array that will serve as an education tool for students.
The University also invested in major neighborhood utility infrastructure upgrades, including slip lining of the municipal sewer mains, water line replacement, expansion of the University’s fiber network over 3 residential blocks, and new utility services to each home.
Trident Project Advantage Group worked closely with the University’s Strategic Capital Program department, and the project team of LDa Architecture & Interiors and Commodore Builders to ensure a quality, low maintenance project delivered on schedule and on budget. Students occupied the third and final phase of the project for the Fall Semester of 2019.
