Campus Building Facade Work Geared to Improve Safety

New York City law requires that buildings over six stories tall must undergo periodic safety inspections. As a result of review by architects and engineers, several components of CUMC building facades have been identified as requiring maintenance and repair. Over the past two years the facades of the P&S and Black Buildings have been fixed. The Georgian Building (home of the School of Nursing), the Hammer Health Sciences Building and Bard Hall and the Vanderbilt Clinic Building are now undergoing repair. The work should not affect normal activities, however emails and lobby signs let occupants know when to expect noise or other interruptions. The work at Hammer is scheduled to be completed by summer 2008.
