Upson Hall Construction Update, 1/2017

18 01 2017

It’s become a little more difficult to shoot photos from certain angles, now that one of the previously-open sidewalks has been closed off. But, it’s not a surprise, they’ve been working on Upson’s new face. The exterior stud framing has been underway on the lowest floors of the west face. Sheathing is being attached, and the rough openings indicate future windows. The lowest floors of the east side, a little further along, have already been coated in turquoise waterproofing material, and are being fitted with windows. On the upper floors, there’s been considerable progress with the terra-cotta and the aluminum surrounds. It doesn’t look like there’s been much progress with attaching new mineral wool and clips, the current work is either finishing up what was well-underway (the upper floors), or getting started with the new exterior (the lower floors), not a whole lot of work going for the in-between stages at the moment.

Inside, you can see the new interior framing being built inside the fully-gutted and renovated interior. According to Cornell’s last update in December, interior demolitions are complete, mechanical rough-ins are ongoing in the basement, and electrical and plumbing are underway on the first and second floors.

Like Gannett, The Pike Company is the general contractor in charge. LTL Architects and Perkins+Will are in charge of design.
