James Hanley Federal Building, US General Services Administration

Exterior Renovation

The 14-story and courthouse annex Hanley FederalBuilding 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.  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.

"Bell & Spina's impeccable credentials as exterior envelope specialists, steadfast attention to detail and unparalleled concern for a quality project, set them apart from other architectural firms."

— Jan June, Director of Facilities at Finger Lakes Community College
