Lawrinson Hall, Syracuse University, Roof Replacement

Lawrinson Hall is a twenty-two (22) story residence hall that sits on a hill above the City of Syracuse adjacent to the Carrier Dome on Syracuse University’s campus. Bell & Spina was asked to design a roof system to withstand the high winds experienced while providing safety fall protection for servicing cameras installed on the building’s corners, which were located outside the existing railing system. A fully-adhered modified bitumen roof system was chosen for its wind resistance, slip resistance, and durability. A narrow balcony circles the penthouse lounge at the 20th floor level. Due to numerous railing penetrations and tight working conditions a liquid membrane was specified in this location.

"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
