Sibley Hall Renovation to Bring Services Under One Roof
01:44pm EDT, 12 Aug 2015
PLATTSBURGH, N.Y. (Aug. 12, 2015) —Sibley Hall on the SUNY Plattsburgh campus is slated for not only a face lift but also a floor lift as crews renovate the space to accommodate the college’s clinics, community programs and psychology department.
As part of the extensive two-year capital improvement project, workers will add a second floor in the space where the gymnasium now sits. According to Rick Larche, SUNY Plattsburgh capital project manager, the entire south end of the building will be renovated. Departments and offices there now include the Third Age Adult Day Center, Environmental Health and Safety, and the old North Country Teacher Resource Center — the space used as the library for the building when it was the old Campus School. A small component of the Hotel, Restaurant and Tourism Management Program will be included but not enough to affect the program’s ability to function during the academic year, Larche said.
