Built in 1965, LoGrasso Hall at SUNY Fredonia offers Health Care Services to over 5,500 students. This one story building houses three separate Centers including Counseling, Health and International Education.
The composite outer wall wythe and inner wythe connection had failed due to water entry, reducing the structural integrity of the wall. The new exterior design improved building performance while simultaneously creating an updated look for the campus facility.

Hanley Federal Building - US General Services Administration
The 14-story and courthouse annex Hanley Federal Building was constructed in 1974. The concrete façade started to spall creating a potential hazard to pedestrians.
As a consultant to NK Bhandari, Bell & Spina conducted an initial visual inspection of the façade close-up and using scopes from surrounding buildings. Noting several areas of concern it was recommended that protection be installed to protect pedestrians from falling debris. Close-up inspection of all surfaces was then contracted using rope access technicians. Field investigations and analysis of the original construction details revealed “thin cover” to the reinforcing steel leading to systemic sub-surface corrosion and building wide cracking and spalling of the concrete façade.
Winding Ridge Apartments - Syracuse University
The redesign of the residential complex was to address several issues including water infiltration, aesthetics to the aging exterior, long life-span with minimal upkeep and the need to keep birds and bees from nesting.
