Admissions Center, Union College

Schenectady, NY

This former fraternity house was converted into a new admissions center for Union College. Ryan-Biggs provided the foundation and structural design of a two-story, 3,000-square-foot, and combination wood-framed metal stud bearing addition with a basement. We also designed the structural portions of the renovation and reinforcement of the existing wood framing in the original 10,000-square-foot, wood-framed/masonry bearing structure. Services began with an overall building evaluation, demolition of the former kitchen addition, and design of the new addition with an elevator, an exit stair, and more office space.
