The Veterinary Research Tower is a nine-story structure that was built in the 1970s, and is clad with brick veneer and curtain walls. The walls are currently constructed without insulation or air barriers, and all windows and curtain walls are single-pane glazing. Cornell University commissioned a whole building condition assessment and then a follow-up conceptual design for necessary upgrades to make code-improvements, improve energy efficiency of the building, and address other necessary improvements.
