the deboni residence | fayetteville, new york


representative projects


the Deboni residence is a product of a unique client and site. the client came to the design process with several well-formed ideas. these included the use of materials normally seen in an industrial building: exposed concrete and steel, metal roofing, high ceilings, and radiant floor heating. the site, on top of a tall drumlin, has a steep slope facing west. the house literally arranged itself with a view to the south and west, entry at the east, and garage to the north. levels for living and entertaining eased naturally into the hillside with the ceiling stepping up and the living levels cascading down the hill, opening the view to the sky above and the bases of the trees below. the spaces of public and private are demarcated by a concrete wall which bisects the house and is perforated for circulation, the kitchen and views. Natural light is guided and controlled in the various spaces. The kitchen is illuminated from above with a south facing skylight which is protected by an overhang. the west wall of glass in the living room is protected by a brise-soleil of concrete. the lower playroom uses its position nestled in the trees to achieve a natural solar control. the house turns its back on the harsh north wind, and has small controlled light and views to the north and south. the result is a harmonious collaboration between client, architect and site. Project cost control and maintenance of schedule were attained, not despite the design’s complexity, but largely due to critical design decisions and programming objectives, the result of a close collaboration between the architect and the client. Despite the custom nature of the house’s siting, design detailing and use of materials, this project is relatively modest in its overall size and program. Its total square footage, at 4,750 square feet, is literally a fraction of the size of the residences constructed within adjacent lots of the neighboring residential development. similarly, its relatively modest program and targeted room sizes (living, dining, family room, kitchen/pantry, half bath, office, play room, nursery, master bedroom and bath, two additional bedrooms and two baths), are significantly less than those typically provided for its neighbors. Perhaps most significantly, the unique design and placement of the house within the existing slope of the site resulted in an extremely efficient use of space, with minimum waste. The project earned a Merit Award in the Residential Category from the Central New York Chapter of the American Institute of Architects in 2008.

chase design Chase Design is a consulting firm providing services in product design, packaging, visual communications, marketing, and planning. Incorporated in 1970, Chase Design has grown steadily to become one of the nation’s leading industrial design firms. The project scope was broken down into three phases. Phase I was to construct a building expansion connected to one of the existing buildings which would be utilized to consolidate departmental work areas, provide a new main entrance & reception area and provide a client conference room. An open office with partitioned work areas was incorporated, with management offices occupying the perimeter. Phase II consisted of an exterior renovation of the current facility, to coincide with the building expansion. The current facility’s exterior consisted of a combination of cedar & metal siding which would be renovated to tie in with the new expansion, with an intention to create a multiple building facility with a campus-type appearance. Lastly, Phase III was the renovation of the current buildings which included the expansion of a connecting walkway that would result in a new employee lunchroom, a redesigned shop layout, a retail store mock-up area, storage area, a dedicated photo studio, and a company meeting room. Woolley Morris provided full-scope architectural & engineering services, including site layout, construction documents, interior design, landscape design, construction administration services (shop drawing review, jobsite meetings).

alger hall Alger Hall is the third of three identical towers within a larger dormitory complex to be renovated. Among the programmatic goals outlined by the campus to be accommodated, in addition to the reworking of dorm rooms and associated bathrooms, were the provision for three-bedroom suites, brighter, more secure basement public spaces (particularly laundry), residence hall director’s and faculty offices and apartments, and added study / conference spaces. Challenges presented to the project included the difficulty of incorporating updated mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection systems within an existing fifty-year-old concrete structure with extremely low floor-to-floor heights. Added to the project complexity is the campus-driven schedule restriction of completing the entire project, including environmental remediation, demolition and subsequent reconstruction within an eight month time period. By utilizing a shifted grid in the development of the floor plans, a vibrant layering of interior spaces and planes results, enhanced by varied paint colors at walls and finish selections at floors & ceilings. And by opening up a portion of the first floor, a two-story lounge with intercommunicating stair was created, providing greater light, security and a sense of interconnectedness. The addition of required program space was obtained by filling out existing building recesses at basement and first floor levels, and by reworking redundant corridor layouts at typical residential floors for the development of suites. The resulting renovation serves to reposition Alger Hall as one with a unique design identity within SUNY Cortland’s residential inventory.

These 1960’s dining halls, part of a complex, designed by the renowned architectural firm of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, consisted of two exterior materials: concrete and a dark bronze aluminum curtain wall. WMA’s scope of work was to survey the structure for concrete repairs and to propose a scheme for replacement of the singlepane curtain wall and infill. Using a strategy developed in previous similar assignments in this complex, a lively and bright solution with random patterns and multi-colored glass makes the buildings look as if they were built today.


x e r o x sys t e m s engineering group Woolley Morris was commissioned by the Edgewater Companies to develop a master plan for a large site in Rochester, NY, and to develop design concepts for the new Xerox Engineering Systems Group. The proposed new building sites will contain mostly manufacturing, research and development, and corporate offices. Individual building sizes range from 40,000 SF to 200,000 SF. The cluster of facilities designated for Xerox contains corporate offices, a research and product development building, a large prototype manufacturing facility, and warehouse. The main activity in the complex was to test existing product lines, and to troubleshoot these products based on data coming from users all over the world. The development activity was oriented around creation of replacement parts that would replace a defective part already in manufacture, or for equipment already in use as part of the warranty support for each individual product line. The prototypical new part would then be subjected to rigorous testing in the facility to insure proper performance, and would be modified accordingly. Once it achieved the proper performance criteria, the part would go into a pilot manufacturing process to sort the most efficient manufacturing techniques in the factory. Only after passing this test would the part be put into full production.

collections research & s torage facilit y PROJECT BACKGROUND The NYS Education Department’s Office of Cultural Education (OCE) operates three major cultural institutions -- the NYS Museum, the State Library and the State Archives. Under the auspices of OCE, all three institutions are dedicated to ensuring that valuable information, knowledge and collections under their care are preserved and made available for current and future generations. In 2003, the OCE developed a Long-Term Facility Plan which projected future space needs for all three institutions 10-year and 25-year timelines. OCE requested the NYS Dormitory Authority (DASNY) to commission a study to examine in more detail the requirements that a new facility would entail, develop concept designs, develop an engineering systems design and conduct a site search. DASNY & OCE retained a consultant team headed by Woolley Morris Architects. FEASIBILITY STUDY FINDINGS • The urgency of the space need has prompted a revision of the projected needs to a 5-year and 15-year timeline. • The 5-year space projection is 593,694 gross feet. • Opportunities to streamline the operations of all three institutions have been identified. • The use of Green Building features offer substantial energy savings, resulting in a payback period of 8-10 years. The new facility will be LEED ® certified. • Significant portions of the storage areas have been designed for compact storage

-- while necessitating a larger equipment purchase, it requires less space and reduces the operating costs of the building substantially. SUSTAINABLE DESIGN FEATURES The new facility will be designed around four main ‘green building’ features: • Geothermal Ground-Sourced HVAC System. The system utilizes ground water for cooling in lieu of cooling towers. The net effect is substantial energy savings, reduction of heat release into the atmosphere, and reduction of water usage. • Subterranean Building Construction. All of the sites under consideration have sufficient slope to permit the construction of the building substantially below grade. By utilizing the soil temperature as a natural cooling source and reducing heat loss/gain through and above-ground wall, heating and cooling loads are significantly reduced. • Green Roofs Utilizing a Sedum Cover. The system being proposed for the new facility uses a standard roof membrane with a covering of sedum plant material. The design reduces roof run-off, protects the membrane from UV degradation, and is highly energy efficient. • Daylighting in Selected Areas. In the office and lab areas, a clerestory light monitor is designed to reflect sunlight into interior spaces. This reduces the demand for artificial lighting during the daytime hours.

This project was a feasibility study that, upon completion, provided a preliminary architectural design, giving physical form to the mission of LORCO. The design emphasized prominent visual access and closely connected the collaborative research activities that would take place inside. The goals of the project were as follows; • Create a preliminary architectural design consisting of alterations to Snygg Hall and a new addition. The new facility will be prominently sited on the north side of Snygg adjacent to the main pedestrian circulation spine currently under development, and will possess extensive areas of glass walls to emphasize the closely connected and collaborative research activities taking place inside. • Establish a project budget based on a building design concept and a facility program. • Identify potential additional sources of grant funding and initiate pursuit of available funding. • Establish parameters for the technology infrastructure and data storage capabilities, which will be fundamental to the collaborative large area research goals of the Great Lakes Research Consortium.

In 1979, Coca-Cola magnate Robert W. Woodruff offered a $7.5 million challenge grant for a new facility that would triple the High Museum of Art’s space to 135,000 square feet. After raising $20 million, the High Museum of Art opened its new Richard Meier designed home in 1983. Among its many awards, the American Institute of Architects deemed the Meier design one of the “ten best works of American architecture in the 1980s.” The stunning, porcelain-enameled building is the ideal setting for the High Museum of Art’s collection of over 11,000 pieces of art. A towering atrium soars to four interior levels, with the galleries moving from 18th and 19th-century collections near the ground floor to the cutting edge of contemporary art on the upper levels. Richard Morris directed the project team dedicated to the design and detailing of the building’s exterior skin. Mr. Morris continued with work on the exhibit designs.

co l u m bus, oh i o The Wexner Center’s building was designed by architects Peter Eisenman of New York and the late Richard Trott of Columbus with landscape architect Laurie Olin of Philadelphia. The Wexner Center was the first major public building to be designed by Eisenman, previously known primarily as a teacher and theorist. He has gone on to design and build a number of other major projects including the Greater Columbus Convention Center. The design includes a large, white metal grid meant to suggest scaffolding, to give the building a sense of incompleteness in tune with the architect’s deconstructivist tastes. Eisenman also took note of the mismatched street grids of the OSU campus and the city of Columbus, which vary by 12.25 degrees, and designed the Wexner Center to alternate which grids it followed. The result was a building of sometimes questionable functionality, but admitted architectural interest. Included in the Wexner Center space are a film and video theater, a performance space, a film and video post production studio, a bookstore, café, and 12,000 square feet of galleries, art instruction studios, lecture rooms, and faculty offices. Ross Woolley was team leader for the design competition and Richard Morris was Sr. Project Manager orchestrating a large contingent of consultants and developing construction details for this very complex structure.


cummins engine co. eisenman robertson architects

The Cummins Engine Company sub-assembly plant is a building of 572,000 square feet built to produce diesel engine components. The site is 322 acres of which approximately 200 acres are heavily wooded. The design inserts the manufacturing facility into the rural landscape with minimum damage to the ecology. The building is located in a corner of the woods which was previously logged. It is partially sunken to a depth of seven feet with the excavated earth banked up on the exposed side. The layout of the plant provides all occupants with a view of the outside. In the middle of the manufacturing area is a landscaped courtyard completely surrounded by glass. Use of light and the outside environment is facilitated by the slanted glass roof of the cafeteria, located in the southwest corner of the building. Using the roof for parking provides a convenient and pleasant access to work stations for employees. Escalators lead directly down through lounges to the working space which is light and airy and with no part more than ninety feet from an uninterrupted view of the outside. Surrounding this space is a perimeter ring of offices, and these too have a direct view of the woods enclosing three sides of the plant.

AltieriSeborWieberLLC Buck Center for Research on Aging Marin County, CA Mechanical and Electrical Engineers Completion Date: 1999 (Phase I) Architects: Pei Cobb Freed & Partners Area: 165,000 s/f (Phase I) 355,000 s/f (Total)

This campus research center will ultimately consist of five linked buildings around a one-acre hexagonal courtyard. The project program included research laboratories, animal holding pens, offices, and educational facilities for research on human aging. This facility is served by redundant HVAC systems, which control temperatures, indoor relative humidity, and filters and manages the flow of supply air to each space. A central control system manages the numerous exhaust systems to protect against cross contamination from space to space. This is accomplished through pressurization controls, which maintain the appropriate indoor air pressure of each space. The first phase, completed in 1999, included the administration building and the first of three research modules. A new central heating/cooling plant for the overall complex is located in the administration building. The plant employed three electric centrifugal chillers with a first phase capacity of 750 tons. The chillers were specified with non-CFC or HCFC type refrigerants. The central plant contains the chillers, boilers, cooling towers, and emergency and standby electric generators. The heating boilers are of the firetube type generating low-pressure steam, which is distributed around the campus. In addition, a battery of high pressure steam boilers of special construction were provided to produce process “clean� steam for use in sterilization equipment, autoclaves, specialty laboratory equipment, and for space humidification.

AltieriSeborWieberLLC Montclair State University – Chapin Hall John J. Cali School of Music Montclair, NJ Mechanical and Electrical Engineers Completion Date: 2009 Architects: Hillier Architecture Chapin Hall is a five-story circa 1908 building that houses the John J. Cali School of Music. The entire existing 29,000 gross square feet was renovated to bring systems and architecture to current standards and Codes, with special attention paid to acoustic issues associated with the University’s Music Program. An additional 23,000 gross square feet was also added to Chapin Hall in order to meet current programmatic requirements of the Department of Music. Both Chapin Hall and the addition were to be compatible with the existing fabric of the campus and the Spanish Mission Style of many of its buildings. The facility included state of the art teaching laboratories, rehearsal and practice halls, studios, and a music therapy suite. The expansion also included the construction of the 250-seat Jed Leshowitz Recital Hall, to complement the existing Alexander Kasser Theater. Heating systems are served by the existing campus steam distribution system. Chilled water is provided by a new 150 ton screw chiller. Five custom air handling units designed for low-velocity air distribution and equipped with humidification systems serve new and renovated areas. New practice rooms are served by individual four-pipe fan coil units which both satisfy space temperature requirements as well as provide acoustic isolation (“white noise”). A separate central air system is also used to provide ventilation air to each of the practice rooms. The campus electrical distribution infrastructure also had to be modified to accommodate the addition, whose construction interfered with the existing medium voltage underground cable and pad-mounted switching systems. Medium voltage ductbanks were rerouted and equipment relocated in a manner to minimize power “down-time” to other areas of campus.

AltieriSeborWieberLLC Montclair State University – Alexander Kasser Theater Montclair, NJ Mechanical and Electrical Engineers Completion Date: 2004 Architects: Hillier Architecture The new 46,000 square foot Montclair University Theater Complex has recently completed construction. The new complex contains a main stage, side stages, and seating for 500 people. The theater serves as a multi-purpose complex for musical, theatrical, dance and theatre performances. The building is served from a central campus high-pressure steam plant and central chilled water system. Inside the building, secondary chilled and hot water systems provide cooling and heating. Air handling systems which serve the rehearsal and performance areas are able to achieve NC 15; the related duct system operates at very low velocity and is free of noise generating accessories such as turning vanes or volume dampers. The large theater is served by a displacement-style cooling system, which places mild temperature air into the space at the floor level. This reduces the overall peak cooling load by stratifying much of the heating load generated by the theatrical lighting system near the ceiling of the theater. A central campus emergency power grid serves life-safety equipment such as emergency egress lighting and alarm systems, as well as standby loads such as elevators and minimal HVAC to maintain building heating systems during a utility power outage.

Our scientific investigation provides our clients with a thorough assessment of damage, as well as a professional analysis of causation that can be used for retrofit, repair, claims adjustment or litigation.


Building Information Modeling The virtual representation of a structure using a 3D building information model (BIM) is becoming the standard in building design and the construction industry. At Thornton Tomasetti, we integrate 3D modeling into our design and analysis work, a technique that enhances collaboration and streamlines work flow. BIMs are virtual representations of buildings that contain many layers of pertinent data and have multiple uses including coordination, scheduling, quantities, and life-cycle management. The benefits of BIM include improved efficiency, better design team coordination, enhanced client communications, interoperability with analysis models, and greater design flexibility. These benefits translate into higher design quality, decreased design cycle time, and fewer coordination problems in the field. Virtual models contain actual member sizes and intelligent parametric objects, interdisciplinary coordination and are easy to check with available features such as clash detection and monitoring tools. Structural Information Modeling (SIM) is tailored for structural work. Our models contain pure structural information that is vital to our design and analytical needs as well as the needs of fabricators and contractors. Thornton Tomasetti has been applying 3D integrated modeling methods for more than 18 years and has refined systems and customized processes to optimize, automate and share models efficiently with clients, design team partners and contractors. In September 2007, Thornton Tomasetti received a Revit BIM Experience Award for Collaborative Use of Building Information Modeling from Autodesk. Renderings and Animations: Our ability take advantage of BIM and create 3D images and renderings, which can be pulled from the BIM at anytime to help to clearly communicate design issues and are inherently more understandable than 2D drawings. Animations and fly-throughs can be created quickly and frequently with a model and by using our in-house “render farm” to help explain complex concepts. Simple to use “web viewers” version BIMs can be created at anytime to allow those not trained in BIM to easily fly through the models and examine progress. If a picture is worth a thousand words then an animation is exponentially more valuable. Interoperability and Automation: Thornton Tomasetti understands the current state of the industry and the lack of true intelligent interoperability. Our firm has grown an advanced automation division to write our own custom in-house translators and interoperability scripts, as needed, to assist the design team create more efficient work flow. Thornton Tomasetti writes customized in-house translators and interoperability scripts using API (application programming interface) to share intelligent BIM information with other software programs, including REVIT, Tekla, AutoCAD, Catia, SAP, ETABS, Rhino, and numerous other applications. Our automation staff can quickly write customized translators for job specific problems and increase speed and production of any process. In addition, we continue to work with many software vendors to help them develop improved software to better suit the industries’ ever changing needs.

Thornton Tomasetti is providing structural design services for a new 310,000­ square-foot building on Novartis’ East Hanover campus. The new building will house 800 open workstations, a 50-seat café, a fitness center and conference rooms. The new office building for the oncology division is part of a consolidation program, which is a component of a larger master plan development of the East Village portion of the campus, scheduled through 2050. The structure will have an extensively glazed roof and curtain wall that will be suspended from architecturally exposed built-up box beams at the roof level. The building contains two architecturally exposed concrete shearwall cores on either side of the atrium. Project challenges included designing elements around exposed steel and concrete features for each floor, and limiting glass deflection, vibrations and movement because of the glass exterior façade. This unusual feature was configured in the design phase with the long-span structural elements. Revit was used throughout the whole project allowing for better architectural and engineering team coordination while saving time.

Hazardous (Potent) Compounds Offering consulting services for the safety of patients and people from exposure, contamination and cross-contamination of hazardous compounds.

CRB has been providing designs to protect the operators, the product, the facilities, and healthcare workers from highly hazardous and potent compounds for over 15 years. CRB engineers are specialists with potent compounds and have unique backgrounds in process design, operations, and process safety. Consistent with current industry and ISPE trends, CRB uses a risk based approach to assess the containment needs for each process step. The risk based approach is based upon the amount of the material present, the physical state and properties of the material, the unit operation being performed, and the health hazard of the material. These considerations allow the owner to weigh the risks associated with each process step and make containment design decisions based on the relative hazard of that operation. This scientific approach provides a safe operation, and since containment decisions are made based on the physical needs of the process, it saves money at the end of the day. CRB Staff • Is experienced with current and developing technologies • Participates in the ISPE Containment Community of Practice Steering Committee • Utilizes a risk based approach that saves money and identifies risks • Are experienced with critical facility and process design

Combination Drug/Medical Device Emerging Combination Drug/Medical Device products now being developed require a new approach to process and facility design. Guidance from the newly formed FDA Office of Combination Products, as well as CDRH, CBER and CDER now govern product and facility design from the earliest stages of development through product approval, launch and routine manufacturing.

Planning and Design Adding to current combination product regulatory challenges are the new high potency pharmaceutical compounds typically in use that require specialized containment systems and processing strategies. Design of new clean rooms must take into account current and future potent chemical compounds and cleaning chemicals, as well as how equipment will be operated and maintained. From R&D labs and pilot plants to full scale facilities, potent pharmaceutical compound processing suites require integrated planning and design. For the downstream low temperature sterilization processes (ethylene oxide, electron beam or gamma radiation) often required for Medical Device or Drug Device sterilization, the overall integration of process equipment with facility HVAC and clean utility systems is critical. CRB can advise and lead your project team in meeting special clean room requirements. A reliable upstream process with well-engineered systems and appropriate redundancies will make the final product sterilization process more robust and your process yields higher. CRB has experience in these emerging combination technologies and can lead your design and process development effort. Our goal is to provide you with the specialized expertise now needed for combination products equipment and facilities.

New Sterile Device Facility Size: 120,000 sq. ft. Construction Cost: $33,000,000


EXPERIENCE The project is one of the first ever medical device manufacturing facilities to be certified under the US Green Building Council’s LEEDŽ rating system. The team focused on strategies that have a large impact on carbon emissions associated with the project. Transportation strategies played a large part in the process. The building site was selected to be as close as possible to the maximum number of existing and potential employees, reducing the commuting distance as much as possible. The project is sited near areas zoned and planned for development of residential areas, which will allow future employees to bicycle or carpool to work. Provisions were made to encourage these alternative transit methods, to reduce the carbon impact of commuter transportation. The team also recognized that energy generation and transmission, as well as water treatment and distribution accounts for a significant percentage of any building’s carbon footprint. Strategies to reduce energy and water use were pursued vigorously. The project team analyzed the different ways that water could be conserved by benchmarking similar projects, and endeavored to reduce water use in each of these ways: The building sanitary system was designed to reduce water use significantly, by using lowflow fixtures throughout, more than a third less water than a typical building. By replacing the clean room hand wash stations with waterless-sanitizing stations, the project saved an additional 85,000 gallons per year. Together, the process water and the sanitary water systems save over 450,000 gallons per year, nearly 44% below the standards for a conventional building.

EXPERIENCE ABBOTT VASCULAR Temecula, California

The scope of this project consists of a 35,000 sq. ft. expansion of this medical device manufacturer. CRB performed design of new R&D laboratory space for the 5th floor of Building F on the Temecula East Campus. The laboratory program serves the Analytical Chemistry group necessary to support the emerging growth of the Drug Eluting Stints (DES) marketplace. The project was built under the requirements of the California Building Code’s “L Occupancy” requirements. The lab space consists of 7 separate laboratories, including 18 Fume Hoods, 120 High Pressure Liquid Chromatography Machines, 126 Release Rate Testers, 92 Gas Chromatographs and 21 Ultrasonicators. Systems designed to support the lab build-out were a VAV supply and an exhaust air system for the laboratory space, VAV supply and return air system for the office spaces, a UPS system, RO/DI (ASTM Type III) water system to serve glass wash and lab areas with localized MilliQ drops (ASTM Type I). The scope of work also includes lab compressed gasses (compressed air, nitrogen, hydrogen), and an emergency generator. The HVAC system consists of two (2) Air Handlers and 18 Chemical Fume Hoods exhausted through strobic style fans. All HVAC load calculations the emergency generator is required by the 2007 Building Code to serve exhaust air system for the laboratories, and optionally equipment within the laboratories, per the ‘L’ Occupancy, H8 Lab designation for the project. The Core and Shell within which this project is located has been designed by CRB as a separate project. The new campus is comprised of two complementary five-story buildings joined by a lobby building within a 27-acre campus located in Temecula, California. These buildings encompass approximately 435,000 sq. ft. The main buildings are designed to exceed California Title 24 energy conservation requirements. The local utility company provided incentives to the client for exceeding these requirements. The design consists of variable air volume systems with air handling units located on the roof of each building. The units are interconnected via ductwork on each floor. As the heat gain for the building shifts from east to west during the day, the units automatically compensate by sharing load responsibilities. The central plant generates both chilled water and heating hot water for conditioning the buildings. The water systems are distributed to the buildings via direct buried, insulated piping. The chilled water system consists of two 2,000-ton chillers with variable speed drives and variable primary-only pumps. In lieu of a traditional primary-secondary pumping system, CRB saved both first costs and operating costs by eliminating the secondary pumps. The cooling tower water system is also an all variable system with variable speed fans and pumps. The entire system is optimized to find the most efficient operating point of the system rather than the most efficient operating point of the equipment.

CRB’s design scope of work for this project includes, at the onset, the evaluation of and recommendations on retrofitting the existing HVAC system serving the laboratory areas of the building to reduce the energy cost associated with these 100% outside air systems. Although the initial focus outlined by the university concentrated on only the conversion of these systems from constant volume to variable volume, CRB worked with university energy engineers, project managers and users to identify a long list of possible energy conservation measures. These measures included physical spatial adjustments, advanced fume hood controls (proximity sensing), variable airflow, and variable reheat hot water flow. Overlaying these energy-saving measures were modifications to the building control system and the inclusion of an active air monitoring system also being investigated. CRB’s direct scope of work included the mechanical modeling and design associated with the evaluation phase along with any supporting electrical, plumbing and architectural scope. CRB has currently completed the modeling and evaluation phase of the project and is looking to transition to the detailed design of selected alternatives in 1Q 2012.

MILLER ADMINISTRATION BUILDING - SUNY CORTLAND EXTERIOR PROJECT Faced with chronic leakage through an exterior plaza deck and foundation, SUNY Cortland funded a waterproofing repair project. In spite of the inflexible connection between the funding process and the definition of the scope of work, WMA surfaced 2 other problems not addressed by the original project. The occupants of the basement level and the second floor (above and below the plaza deck) were experiencing chronic physical discomfort due to the inadequate insulation of the floor surfaces exposed to the elements. In addition, the administration was in the early phases of redefining the student services functions: Bursar, Financial Aid, and Enrollment, into a more visible and accessible department. No space was available for this function. The new enclosed space solved all 3 problems with no additional expense above the original budget allocation. In effect, all 3 projects were accomplished in one assignment. INTERIOR PROJECT The project scope also encompassed the gut renovation of the upper administration’s floor.
