Richardson Hall was the first structure built on the ASU campus in 1925. In 2014, it underwent a historic renovation that included the replacement of the electrical, plumbing and mechanical systems with energy and water conserving systems, and the improvement of ADA accessibility. Richardson Hall contains office space for 125 employees, a museum, nursing department, and a 10,396 square-foot auditorium used for community events and music department performances. The building’s third floor was restored to add additional usable space. Variable refrigerant flow systems were designed, utilizing four, 24-ton condensing and over 80 indoor units to provide high-efficiency heating and cooling to the office and classroom spaces. The condensing units were designed to be installed in a temperature-regulated mechanical room to maintain full heating capacity without de-rating for low ambient winter conditions. The sustainably design project earned LEED Silver certification from the US Green Building Council.
