Located on the corner of 185th Street and Amsterdam Avenue, Yeshiva University’s Belz Building (previously known as Sol and Hila Furst Hall) is an existing 5-story, brick façade building in Washington Heights planning for a comprehensive renovation that includes the recladding and reprogramming of the building. With the onset of Local Law 97, the recladding of the Belz Center presents an opportunity for Yeshiva University to move towards their goals of energy efficiency, emissions reductions, and carbon neutrality.

Additional Information
Working in close liaison with the Marpillero Pollak Architects and Applied Design Initiative, Büro Ehring provides investigation and full building enclosure and structural engineering services for the project, including the re-cladding of the façade, analysis of energy code compliance for the building enclosure, and structural design of various interventions throughout the building.
