MacDonough Hall, SUNY Plattsburgh

MacDonough Hall, SUNY Plattsburgh

Built in 1949, MacDonough Hall is a three story dormitory building, built in the federalist style with classical gable pediments, frieze boards and wood cornices. Many of the ornamental architectural features were original and deteriorated from years of water infiltration and structural sagging.  SUNY Plattsburgh and DASNY retained Bell & Spina to replace the defective slate shingles, make structural repairs to the cornices and eaves and improve building thermal performance all while maintaining the historic appearance of slate roofing materials.
