The 160,000 SF complete building renovation for the College of Engineering is designed to be the most energy efficient building on the campus of Cornell University, scheduled to be completed this fall.

With construction underway on Upson Hall, the Cornell School of Engineering anticipates the new learning spaces that the renovation will provide. In addition to a completely new facade for the 60-year-old building, the redesign of Upson Hall will offer reconfigured offices and classrooms for increased exchange, an expanded Experiential Learning Lab, and hybrid engineering labs. The Upson Hall renovation was designed by the interdisciplinary team of LTL Architects, Perkins+Will, and Thornton Tomasetti.
