Cornell Law School Renovation Update, 3/2017

28 03 2017

Finally starting to see a little bit of progressing on the renovations to Hughes Hall. The rest of the old masonry wall on the lower floors has been stripped out, and is covered with plastic and plywood for the time being. Eventually, the space will be opened as the new glass enclosure is built for the new west staircase. For the record. the stairwell is completely new; it replaces one that was slightly further to the east, on the inside corner of the building. This gut renovation is down to the studs, and then some. No work on enclosing the loggia just yet.

Design work is by KSS Architects, with offices in Princeton and Philadelphia. Frequent Cornell collaborator Welliver is the general contractor. The project is expected to cost about $10.2 million and take about 13 months to complete, meaning November 2017 if all goes to plan.
