Lehigh University, Christmas-Saucon and Chandler-Ullmann Halls

As part of a feasibility study exploring transforming two 19th-century facilities into contemporary academic buildings, CVM investigated the envelope and exterior closure systems of Christmas-Saucon Hall and Chandler-Ullmann Hall on the campus of Lehigh University. Components examined included walls, roofing, windows and chimneys, with methods ranging from visual examination to moisture measurements, infrared thermography scans and ambient air measurements. Within CVM’s final report were recommendations and cost estimations for immediate, short- and long-term repair programs.
