Cornell University Comparative Code Evaluation
Foit-Albert Associates was contracted to perform a code evaluation for The John T. Oxley Equestrian Center at Cornell University to determine necessary work, if any, to achieve compliance. A comparative analysis was undertaken between the NYS Code of the day (The 1987 “NYS Green Book”) vs. the contemporary code in effect. During the review period, the NYS Code was further updated, necessitating comparative reviews between the 1987, 2015 and 2020 NYS Code versions. Comparative work scopes, cost estimates and compliance alternatives were developed for Campus negotiation with the Town of Ithaca Building Department.
