The Loomis Chaffee School
Windsor, Connecticut

The Loomis Chaffee School is a quintessential New England independent school enrolling more than 700 high school students. The campus, which provides boarding to more than 50% of its student body, is situated on 300 acres in a semi-rural setting in historic Windsor, CT (settled in 1633). The overall 'feel' to the campus is an essential characteristic in attracting and retaining students, faculty and staff. Recognizing the importance planning and investing in the campus, the school embarked upon a comprehensive study to document the deferred maintenance and modernization needs of their existing facilities.

SBS was engaged to conduct a Facilities Conditions Assessment of the entire campus during the summer of 2006, including 66 buildings covering over 739,000 square feet. SBS inspection teams thoroughly assessed and documented deferred maintenance issues related to architectural, electrical, site & code, and life safety issues. A special emphasis was placed on the Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems due to predominance of historic buildings and campus systems. SBS worked closely with a committee of administrators and Trustees to integrate the findings within more comprehensive facilities planning efforts. As the school moves forward, this tool will serve as an invaluable resource to recognize the exposures facing the institution.
