Engineering News-Record (ENR), a weekly trade magazine for the construction industry, announced the winners for its annual Best Projects Competition, and Fordham took home an award of merit for the renovation of the Gabelli School of Business' new home in Hughes Hall.
The renovation of the 50,000 square foot, 19th century building in the heart of the Rose Hill campus was completed in the summer of 2012 with the aid of a $25 million gift from Mario Gabelli, GSB '65. It involved a complex process of dismantling everything but the walls of the original structure, and constructing a new building inside it.
The award of merit in the Higher Education/Research category was shared with Connecticut College’s Hall Life Science Building. SUNY College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering’s NanoFab Xtension in Albany, was the winner.
