Rakov Center, Tower Fine Arts, and Hartwell Hall, SUNY Brockport

Sitework Improvements

SUNY Brockport retained Bell & Spina to design exterior stair improvements for the Rakov Center for Student Services, Tower Fine Arts and Hartwell Hall. The existing granite and concrete stairs and landing showed deterioration, cracks and water ponding while some treads have shifted significantly.

On the monumental granite stairs at Hartwell Hall, the granite was removed and reused and the wrought iron railings were replicated.  The Rakov Center west entrance stairs and ramp were removed, with regrading, landscaping and retaining walls creating a new ADA compliant entry.  At the Tower Fine Arts building, precast concrete stairs were replaced with granite stairs and bookended by concrete landscaping planters.

Bell & Spina contracted with EDR to design landscaping and site improvements adjacent to the newly rehabilitated entry stairs at all three buildings.

"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."
