Syracuse University Hendricks Chapel

Client: Syracuse University

Location: Syracuse, NY

IBC Engineering P.C. provided a design that would add mechanical cooling at their Hendricks interfaith chapel, located as a center piece of the University campus. A main challenge to the project was to provide a new cooling system that could not be heard, nor compromise the 16th century style architecture.


  • Extensive collaboration and coordination between the Building Staff, Building Owner, Construction Team, and MEP Engineering teams to provide the new cooling system.
  • At the completion of the project, the Dean of Hendricks wrote “It was great to visit together the other day, for not only is the new HVAC a delight, it has been a joy and pleasure to learn from you and witness such passion and enthusiasm. Please know that you have made a tremendous difference in our midst, and I am left inspired!”
