Cornell Gates Hall

Project Info

Name: Bill & Melinda Gates Hall

Client: Cornell University

Location: Ithaca, New York

Project Summary

Welliver was involved in Gates Hall's development from the start. After having provided comprehensive pre-construction services, which included aggressive value engineering exercises, Welliver was awarded the opportunity to act as construction manager on the LEED Gold-intended project. Gates Hall, which is funded in part by a grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, now houses the Department of Computer Science, the new Department of Information Science, and research and teaching facilities for both departments. More than one-third of the building is composed of research and teaching labs, including specialized labs for cyber security, human-computer interaction, computational sustainability, robotics, computer vision, and other research areas.

This building is adjacent to Hoy Field and a busy campus intersection, so a thorough logistics plan had to be implemented to ensure the safety of students and visitors during construction.
