Current Projects

Page Campus Schools Boiler Upgrade
WASA Engineering is currently designing an upgrade to the heating and cooling system for Hunter College Campus Schools. Check back for more information, coming soon.
Page Broadcast Media Lab
Opening in late 2014, the students of the Film and Media Department will be able to use the new and improved television production studio located in HN436. Having a television studio provides a space where students can utilize multi-camera video to create TV programming like soap operas, situation comedies, or talk shows. The new facility includes three HD cameras each with their own teleprompters, the ability to use Chroma-key on all the walls of the studio, and a video mixer that eliminates the need to manually switch wires. One of the most significant updates to the facility is the conversion from analog to digital production equipment and software. Though this is a Film/Media facility, this space is open to the Hunter community, and is also available for rent for TV production needs.
Page 68th Street Campus Escalator Replacement
The escalators that serve the 68th Street Campus have been in continuous operation since the East and West Buildings became operational in 1984, and have reached the end of their useful life. The College, in partnership with the Dormitory Authority of the State of New York and CUNY, is now taking on the complex project of replacing these escalators. Work on this project is expected to last two years, concluding in 2016. SCROLL DOWN TO VIEW PICTURES OF THE PROGRESS OF THE ESCALATOR REPLACEMENT.
Page Library, 6th & 7th Floors
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. A 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. Phase 2 of this project is focused on the 6th and 7th floors of the Library. The renovation process is currently underway.
Page Casa Lally, 132 E. 65th Street
Casa Lally is home to Hunter College's Italian language institute, Parliamo Italiano. Several years of renovation work to its interior and exterior concluded in late spring of 2014. Parliamo's well-regarded Italian language courses resumed in this space in the fall semester of 2014 after being held for several semesters at Hunter's main campus. The College recently contracted with an architect who has begun to design additional features for this space.
Page Library, B2 Level
Modernization of Hunter's main library is one of the College's signature projects. The B2 level is being renovated to contain state-of-the-art, high-density shelving and new flooring. The innovative shelving arrangement has initiated a location shift of the entire circulating collection, and materials will be easier than ever for students to find. Collections are being arranged to flow in logical, intuitive sequencing. Images below portray the progress of this project.
Page Lecture Hall 714 West
As one of the largest and most intensively-used spaces on Hunter's campus, this lecture hall is now receiving the well-deserved makeover that it has long awaited. It is undergoing an extensive, dual-phase renovation. The first phase took place over several weeks during the summer of 2014. During this phase, the hall received lighting and aesthetic upgrades, a state-of-the-art audio-visual system, sound-damping, fire safety work, and replacement of doors and door hardware. The second phase of this renovation will include installation of new flooring and complete replacement of its auditorium-style seating. Design work for this second phase is currently underway, and the work for this phase is expected to begin directly after the completion of fall semester 2014 finals.
Page Campus Schools: Playground Renovation
A planned renovation, funded by local elected officials, is being bid out this fall, and is anticipated to commence at Campus Schools in the spring of 2015, to repair and resurface the playground. Pictures will be displayed soon--check back periodically on this web page.
Page North Building Roof Replacement
Design is ongoing 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. Construction is anticipated to begin in the late spring or early summer of 2015.
