SUNY Delhi Sanford Hall Renovation
Delhi, New York
Sanford Hall, a 47,000-square-foot university building constructed in 1964, underwent a complete renovation in 2010 that not only updated its 50-year-old infrastructure but also created a new identity setting the visual tone for the modern college of technology that the State University of New York at Delhi is.
Mosaic worked with representatives from SUCF and the campus on the conceptual designs for the academic building renovation to create an exciting new look for the entrance, upgrades to the building’s interior finishes and exterior envelope.
The original library wing was converted into two smaller group classrooms and a large, high-tech classroom with tiered seating for group learning opportunities. The classrooms make the best of the natural views and day-lighting with modern glazing technology. The natural lighting improvements helped the building achieve LEED Silver Certification, along with appropriate fine tuning of artificial lighting, improved indoor air quality and HVAC system efficiency, major systems commissioning and a high albedo roof to reduce heat island effect and cooling demand. Renovations also bring Sanford Hall into compliance with ADA and current code standards.×
