bld architecture was selected by the state university of new york at farmingdale for the exterior restoration of eight of the original campus buildings which were built between 1914 and 1930. the initial evaluations included research of the original buildings to document their current condition and the extent of repair. included in the evaluation are the allocation of budget and a schedule of priority and apportioned work. many of the buildings required testing for water migration, hazardous materials and structural integrity.
all work performed maintains the historic significance and architectural character of these buildings. controlling the schedule and budget was a major concern for the project, especially with the ongoing trimming of state funds. bld architecture issued phased drawings and construction budgets to monitor and balance the costs across the eight buildings. private restoration contractors were brought in together with our cost estimating experts to verify all proposed costs and schedules.
