Occupied Facilities

Science Hill and West Campus, Yale University

On behalf of Yale University, Giordano has successfully streamlined and coordinated many schedule-driven (often simultaneously occurring) projects in occupied campus facilities by providing an anticipatory “rapid response” oversight, minimizing potential problems, and identifying procurement savings opportunities for the University. Buildings systems were replaced with high efficiency, sustainable and eco-friendly upgrades. Substantial math/ computer/ science department projects included: 51 Hillhouse Avenue, Kline Geology, Mason Lab, Dunham Lab, Becton Lab, Malone Lab, Osborn Memorial Lab, Kline Biology, Sterling Lab, Leitner Observatory, Wright Lab, Gibbs Lab, Sloane Lab, Kirtland Hall and the Yale Peabody Museum. On behalf of Yale University’s Social Sciences Department, Giordano served as Construction Manager of two significant projects. The LEED Silver Certified new construction of Rosenkranz Hall, a 70,000 sf, four-story, steel structure with limestone and curtainwall façade constructed on a constrained, active campus site was designed by the architectural firm Koetter Kim and Associates. The building houses faculty and staff members from the Political Science Department and the MacMillan Center for International and Area Studies, thus helping to consolidate programs that were formerly spread across several buildings. The Jackson Institute of Global Affairs occupies the first two floors of the building’s Prospect Street wing. In addition to offices, the structure includes classrooms, student workspaces and breakout rooms. Rosenkranz  Hall is carefully designed to fit into its surrounding environment. A skylight and a north-facing glass atrium allows natural light into the space, and two bridges connect it to the adjacent Luce Hall. 77 Prospect Street is the University’s Institute for Social and Policy Studies. The original historic building underwent major renovations which included a new 7,400 sf addition to provide meeting space, seminar rooms, lecture halls and several faculty offices. Additionally, the new building served to connect the previously distinct buildings at 77 Prospect Street and 89 Trumbull Street making a more cohesive facility. Giordano also oversaw extensive interior renovations of Social Science department offices at both 205 and 238 Prospect Street.
