SUNY Fredonia - Maytum Hall

Fredonia, New York

Maytum Hall is a principal building on the SUNY Fredonia campus. Designed by the preeminent architect I.M. Pei and built in 1963, the architecture of Maytum Hall features an 11-degree curve, and is constructed primarily of concrete. Rising nine stories, this semi-circular building is the tallest building in Chautauqua County. Maytum Hall is both an iconic example of the modern architectural design of its era, and has served as a center of activity on the SUNY Fredonia campus since its construction. 

Maytum Hall houses the College of Education, a computer center, and offices of Financial Aid, Registrar, Student Affairs and Human Resources. The renovations are expected to be complete in 2012, and include an extensive interior renovation and window replacement that will secure Maytum Hall's place as a focal point of the SUNY Fredonia campus.

Sienna Environmental Technologies, LLC provided environmental services as a prime contractor to SUNY Fredonia on this project. Sienna's services have included:

The window replacement portion of the renovation includes: the removal of all existing windows, installation of a new double glazed thermal break aluminum window system, patch and painting of damaged interior walls, and the inclusion of operable windows in various locations throughout the building. Maytum Hall's interior rehabilitation includes: removal of all asbestos-containing ceilings and partitions, upgrade of existing ventilation system, and installation of a new fire protection sprinkler system, data/communications system, electrical distribution system, suspended ceiling system, lighting system, and partitions. The renovations also include new finishes throughout all nine floors: carpet, floor, tile and paint.
