The Statler Hall Entry Renovation has been opened-up since late August, but the interior work and all exterior finishes are now complete. Here are some final photos for the project, which began in early summer, and took out the western-facing 1987 arched limestone entryway to replace with a new limestone and glass-wrapped 450 square foot vestibule and expanded space on the second floor above. Photos throughout construction may be seen on the project category page.
Cornell’s future 33,250 square foot Klarman Hall project being built by Welliver has finished-up the north and south foundations, and steel erectors are on site craning and bolting steel columns and beams in place on the south end. The columns are anchored to each foundation footing cap or pier, then the beams between each column are bolted and welded to the proper connection. The north end’s steel work should be completed by early November, and we’ll see the atrium steel assembly commence and complete throughout November.
The future 33,250 square foot Klarman Hall project being constructed between the wings of Goldwin Smith Hall by Welliver has completed the north and south foundation walls, and in addition to progress on the retaining foundation wall along East Ave, the southern concrete wall has been formed and poured. Because of the steep grade and excavation, concrete trucks park on East Ave and unload concrete into crane buckets that hoist the pours over to each form.
Cornell’s $2.4 million Statler Hall Entry Renovation project seems to be nearing completion: the exterior limestone veneer facade sections are installed, and the second floor interior ductwork and mechanicals have been wrapped in insulation. Next up are final touches to the exterior- aluminum trim work between the glass curtain wall, roof fascia, stone base sill, bike racks, and the remainder of the interior finishes.
The design is by KSS Architects and M/E Engineering, and the project has been managed in-house by Cornell Facilities Services.
The renovation is intended to match the additions that have been completed on the eastern and southern sides: the Beck Center along the eastern side (Phase One Expansion), and the renovated auditorium tower on the southern side (Phase Two expansion). KSS Architects designed both the Beck Center and the Tower Renovation
Cornell’s future 33,250 square foot Klarman Hall Project being constructed by Welliver has continued progress on the concrete wall along East Avenue and the south foundation walls. The shoring wall along East Ave (driven into place over the summer) holds the soil back as rebar is assembled, then large steel forms are craned in place and secured, and concrete is poured section-by-section going south to north. It’s hard to make out the status of the north foundation walls, but looking at the schedule, we should see rebar assembly there shortly. The south foundation walls have been completed, and steel erection above these walls should begin soon. Photos from August 20th and September 1st below:
