In May, four KHH employees attended this year’s Historic Ithaca Preservation Awards held at La Tourelle. KHH was honored to receive an Award of Merit in Historic Preservation for our work on Cornell University’s Rockefeller Hall. The intent of the project was to rehabilitate the building’s weathered and deteriorated northwest exterior entry stair. Rehabilitation efforts included the steps, landing platform, door threshold, and stair cheek wall. Existing historic materials were preserved wherever possible, and unsalvageable materials were replaced in kind.

Several other interesting projects received Awards of Merit as well. It was great to learn about these projects and meet some of the inspiring minds on the project teams. It was our privilege to be honored alongside these talented individuals.
