Kemeny Hall & Haldeman Center

Kemeny Hall & Haldeman Center

Kemeny/Haldeman is an interdisciplinary center at Dartmouth College, just north of Baker-Berry Library. The brick and granite building was designed in association with Moore Ruble Yudell.

Dartmouth College
Hanover, NH
Completed: 2006 94,000 sf with Moore Ruble Yudell LEED Silver Certified

Kemeny Hall reunites the Mathematics Department after 25 years of occupying three separate buildings. The new department features “smart” classrooms, labs, offices and common spaces for students and faculty.

The Haldeman Center supports three of Dartmouth’s intellectual centers: the Ethics Institute, the Leslie Humanities Center, and the Dickey Center for International Understanding. It facilitates collaboration among the centers, increases their visibility, and promotes access to speakers, conferences, and programs. The Haldeman Center features a shared lobby and full support areas for each center, including libraries, conference and multimedia spaces, offices, kitchens, and lounges.

Compatibility with Dartmouth’s historic campus and energy performance were major design considerations. The building is LEED Silver certified. Sustainable features include a high-performance building envelope with triple-glazed windows and highly efficient building envelope, valence and chilled beam heating and cooling technologies, enthalpy heat recovery, variable frequency drives and direct digital controls for heating and cooling systems, and fully commissioned mechanical systems.
