Sonoma State University, Ives Hall Roof and HVAC Replacement

Rohnert Park, California

Project Type: Education, University

Ives Hall originally served as Sonoma State University’s (SSU) performing arts building. Built in the early 1960s, it is one of the original buildings on the SSU campus. With the completion of the Green Music Center in 2008, primary public performance functions have moved; however, Ives Hall continues to house a small performance theater, studio theater, classrooms, recital rooms and faculty offices.

This project consisted of the replacement of the building’s aging main rooftop HVAC equipment, located within the penthouse, along with the adjoining membrane roof system. Interactive Resources selected a new PVC single-ply membrane system, similar to that of the adjoining roof areas outside the penthouse. Additionally, we provided design services for a new standing seam metal roof over the penthouse to replace the existing metal roof, which needed to be removed to accommodate the replacement of the existing rooftop HVAC system with new equipment. This work also included incorporating new perimeter louvers directly below the metal roof.

Interactive Resources provided schematic design and construction documents, as well as agency review and bid phase services.
