Project Request:

Prepare schematic design study for interior renovations and construction phasing for Dana Hall under a term contract.

Project Solution:

The team worked together with SUCF and SUNY Canton to develop programmatic goals and a schematic design for the renovation, through a two-pronged approach. First, we conducted extensive surveys of building interiors, a hazardous materials survey, and reviewed prior documentation to establish a baseline model of the building and its deficiencies. Second, we conducted workshop discussions with the end users. Basic use programs were proposed, reviewed and modified. A number of proposed solutions and layouts were reviewed and revised to create the final design.
