Learn how Cornell University’s Warren Hall—a 130,000 square foot pre-war building with historic masonry—was renovated into a modern LEED Platinum home for the University’s undergraduate business program. Cornell’s challenge to the design team was to bring the steam-heated, non-air conditioned space up to current standards of comfort without increasing net energy use. With envelope performance improvements that preserved the historic exterior and new mechanical systems and technologies, Warren Hall has become a model for adaptive retrofit of other pre-war buildings on campus, and in fact nationwide. Join the project’s client, architect, and exterior envelope consultant for a detailed discussion highlighting key lessons for building owners, architects and engineers interested in retrofitting existing pre-war masonry buildings.
