SUNY Purchase Humanities Building

As it approached its 40th birthday, the SUNY Purchase Humanities Building needed a facelift. The State University Construction Fund selected Pavarini McGovern to lead the renovation of the 92,530sf building located on the south side of the campus’ central plaza.

Since it was built in 1973, the building had essentially had no significant renovations, and it was built before today’s environmental health and safety regulations, energy conservation and ADA requirements were enacted. Accordingly, the renovation was designed to update the building’s functionality and code compliance while preserving its iconic features.

The project required the complete “gut” demolition of all interior finishes and systems, including hazardous materials abatement, and improved circulation, reorganized corridors, new and refurbished stair locations and centralized elevator access. The effort also added more than 40 new classrooms, a journalism center with a newsroom, broadcast studio and control room and renovations to the existing theater. Exterior renovations included a new roof, new windows and selective restoration/replacement of the brick façade. As part of the ADA compliance requirements, a new accessible route was constructed, linking the Lincoln Avenue parking lot to the basement level along the east elevation.

The renovation achieved a LEED Silver rating.
