Current Projects

A list of projects currently being undertaken by the Office of Capital Projects:


Sidewalk Vaults               7/5/2011  -  12/31/2011

This past year, we have completed Phase I of the Sidewalk Vault Project. Our next phase of work is to begin this summer 2011 which will incorporate two vault locations on 121st Street. This project was created to correct and eliminate the consistent water penetration from the street level into our ground level areas.


Residential Feasibility Study               3/1/2011  -  9/1/2011

Teachers College is undergoing a full feasibility study of Bancroft, Grant and Sarasota. Due to the age and on-going infrastructure issues of the three buildings, our objective is to correct and address the infrastructure needs to meet the needs of modern-day students and better their quality of life.



Thorndike 7th Floor - Reading and Writing Program               9/1/2011  -  12/31/2011

The Reading and Writing Program will be undergoing a large-scale renovation project on the 7th floor of Thorndike Hall due to the demand for additional space to support the growing programmatic needs.  The new design will include an internal staircase to connect the 7th and 8th floors of Thorndike to ease internal traffic flow and aid the connectivity of the two floors. The new design will maintain the design intent for the 8th floor, while incorporating elements to both modernize and enhance the existing space.
