Maxcy Hall, University of New Haven - West Haven, Connecticut


The University of New Haven’s Maxcy Hall was built in the early 1900s and opened in 1909, and it is the cornerstone of the campus complex. 

Martin A. Benassi, AIA – Architect, LLC was retained to prepare construction documents for the exterior restoration of the building.  Scope of work included complete reroofing, window replacement, and built-in gutter restoration.  Windows were to be replaced with energy efficient, aluminum-clad units which matched the original historic profile, including trim and size.

A major portion of the work included the complete restoration of the Maxcy Hall porches, with particular care to preserve their original historic profile.
