This project for the State University Construction Fund includes complete replacement of the curtain wall system and the skylight and gutter system. Also included in the scope are structural upgrades that tie in the masonryexterior wall and the aluminum skylight, complying with current lateral load requirements. The new high-performance glazing and skylight structure improves insulation, increases the amount of daylight, and reduces the U.V. energy entering into the building. The extruded aluminum skylight sticks are all custom fabricated to have maximum wall thickness and minimal increase to the exterior overall dimension. As a result, the new skylight structure is much stiffer and is only 2 inches deeper and 1 inch wider than the lightweight sticks that were removed.The existing glass was a single slab of tinted on heat strengthened glass. The new glass units are insulated and laminated with a special U.V. resistant coating. The new gutter design abandons the leaking internal leaders and provides new exterior downspouts with one side open in order to resist accumulation of ice and snow and to create a musical sound of the water falling onto river stones.The interior floor finishes, upholstery and paint colors are modified from the original design to reflect an architecture of our time rather than that of the 1970s. The original VCT floor has been replaced with Plynyl to improve sound absorption, eliminate the need for waxing, and provide a gentle cushioned surface that is a welcome relief to dancers’ feet.
