Addition and Historic Restoration and Site Improvements

April 2019

Contract Amount:

Architect: Crawford & Stearns – 315-471-2162 - Joseph Picciano

National Building was awarded the contract by the MU of DKE for this Historic Fraternal Temple which is located on Colgate University’s campus in Hamilton, NY. For the West entry addition, the exterior will be built to today's codes and safety standards, but will look like it was built in the late 1800s . The exterior façade will be a Guillotine Split Pennsylvania Bluestone, with precast bands and brick arches to match the existing temple. The roof will have Yankee gutters and bronze downspouts and be completely coated in copper sheet metal and trims. The remainder of the project will consist of exterior repairs such as complete foundation waterproofing and insulation, new paving, sidewalks and curbs, and all new site utilities. NBRC is pleased to be involved in this project for the oldest fraternal order on Colgate’s Campus, dating back to 1856.
