Renovations to Dance Building, SUNY Purchase
U.W. Marx provided general contracting services to SUNY Purchase College for the rehabilitation of the Westchester County, NY school's Dance Building.
The project involved a complete replacement of the skylight system, curtainwall and masonry flashing. The renovation is expected to maintain the integrity of the building, while also enhancing the structural make-up of the active dance facility. The building had suffered damage from water intrusion.
According to SUNY Purchase's web site, "the award-winning Dance Building, designed by Gunner Birkerts, is the first facility in the United States to be constructed solely for the study and performance of dance."
