Current Projects

Page Campus Schools Boiler Upgrade
A project is being designed to upgrade the heating and cooling system for Hunter College Campus Schools. Work is anticipated to begin in the spring of 2016.
Page Cooperman Library, 6th & 7th Floors
The renovation of the 6th and 7th floors of the Cooperman Library is now underway. In addition to the reading and study space, on the 6th floor the School of Education will have their own library, including smart classrooms, a technology help-and-loan center and a lab for analyzing student-teaching videos. The 7th floor will be home to the new Silverstein Student Success Center, which will bring together in one place Hunter's three student-tutoring facilities: the Dolciani Mathematics Center, the Rockowitz Writing Center and the new Skirball Science Center. The 7th floor will also house a lecture hall and a new pre-professional center for students pursuing careers in law, business, medicine and health. The Library consists of 125,000 square feet over nine floors. It serves more than 20,000 students and faculty. Originally designed to accommodate 9,000 students, it was built over 30 years ago and no longer meets the College's academic needs. The phased capital renovation of the Library is now underway, which will include upgrades to the HVAC systems, lighting, architectural finishes, space reprogramming, installation of condensed shelving, and outfitting of furniture and equipment--all to reestablish this space as a first-class destination for students and faculty.
Page North Building Roof Replacement
Design has been completed for a comprehensive roof replacement project for the North Building of the Main Hunter Campus. All roofs at all levels and setbacks will be replaced, as part of a much-needed replacement of roofing material that has outlived its useful life. This project will feature the inclusion of materials that conform to current energy efficiency codes. These materials will have the ability to deflect heat, thus requiring less energy to keep the upper floors of the building, which are subject to the greatest heat load, cool during warmer months.

Page North Building Chemical Storage Facility
The chemical storage facility was completed in December 2016 and will soon come into full utilization as Hunter is granted the required operating permits. The 1500-square-foot space was upgraded to handle the ever-expanding requirements of Hunter's Chemistry Department. The facility features a new fire alarm and sprinkler system and an updated fume hood exhaust system.

Page West Building Plaza Improvements
The plaza that fronts the West Building serves as the main gateway to and public gathering place on our 68th Street Campus. For the general public, the plaza is the primary point of entry into the Campus, and it is also a busy crossroads because it contains a subway entrance/exit. Years of heavy foot traffic in and around this area have caused appreciable wear and tear to the pavement, and has also caused water seepage and leaking into basement-level spaces directly underneath the plaza, warranting an overdue upgrade to the plaza. The project will involve design and construction to beautify the pavement and to eliminate water seepage into areas beneath by removing and replacing worn pavers and by waterproofing the surface below the pavers.
Page Cooperman Library Energy Efficiency Project
Currently at about 90% complete, this project is a needed upgrade to the regulation of climate in Hunter's Cooperman Library, encompassing floor 7 down to the B3 level of the East Building. The improvements include the replacement of three air handling units, replacement of all perimeter induction units and variable air volume boxes, a new chilled water blending station, and upgrades to the controls which run the entire system. The control system is available to engineers via desktop computer, which means that the system can be monitored, programmed and controlled remotely and conveniently. Additionally, tinted film is being applied to all windows on floors 7 and below, which will block a high percentage of heat and UV rays that would normally pass into the building and increase interior heat load. These efforts will all result in a more comfortable environment in which to study and learn, with the added benefit of energy efficiencies.
