Statler Hall Entry Renovation Begins

June 15, 2014 // by Jason Henderson

Cornell’s Statler Hall Entry renovation has begun, as the western-facing 1987 arched limestone entryway has been removed from the building over the past three weeks, along with the hardscape out in front. The existing floors have been blocked-off with stud walls and fiberglass-mat sheathing on the outside, as the project will commence with building an entirely new entryway vestibule and re-worked hallway that includes additional second-floor space above, with an ample metal-framed glass curtain wall on either side. The new stone base will match the existing, and the facade will contain limestone panels to compliment the existing limestone veneer. In addition to the expanded and renovated space, the project contains significant new HVAC work as one of the primary motivators.

The $2.4 million project was designed by KSS Architects, and M/E Engineering. The plans were presented back in December of last year, with a planned delivery date of August.
