James C. Colgate Student Union

James C. Colgate Student Union - Colgate University

The James C. Colgate Student Union sits prominently at the base of the hill leading up to the campus and is a visual icon of the University. It was very important to the University that the roof materials were faithful to the original building but balanced the aesthetic, maintenance and performance requirements. Clay roof shingles and copper flashing and standing seam metal roofing materials were specified to replace the original slate shingles.
