Maine Maritime Academy, Curtis Hall Renovation

Maine Maritime Academy’s Curtis Hall is a 160,000 SF student residence hall built in three phases between 1969 and 1973 and houses 650 students in 315 rooms. The ground floor contains the Academy’s bookstore, recreation facilities, and utility rooms, with the first floor supporting the Administrative Offices and student and health services. Floors two through four contain dorm rooms, student lounges, laundry facilities, and bathrooms.

Curtis Hall is the sole residence hall on campus and serves as the hub for student life. The renovations will focus on upgrading the existing systems to improve occupant comfort, including adding air conditioning and efficient ventilation throughout the building. The scope of work includes upgrades to mechanical, plumbing, electrical, fire protection, and heating systems and improvements to the building envelope elements of the roof, windows, and exterior cladding. Renovations will bring the main entry lobby, and key hospitality features up to current residence hall standards.
