DASNY seeks proposals from Construction Management (CM) firms to provide pre-construction and construction phase construction management services for the renovation of the Assembly Hall Auditorium (“Auditorium”) at Hunter College North Building.  The purpose of this project is to create a modern venue for musical performances, large lecture-style classes, and special events such as ceremonies and symposiums.  The facility will support the college’s uses and will also operate as a rental venue serving the NYC region.

The Auditorium at Hunter College’s North Building on the 68th Street campus, is most often used for graduation ceremonies or large symposiums. It also provides a festive environment for celebrations and other large-scale gathering. The Auditorium is comprised of approximately 25,000 square feet and currently seats 2,116 people. It features a compact stage area, small wings, wide continental seating layout, a second-floor balcony and corridor and includes a related basement area. The North Building was built in 1940. It was designed by Shreve, Lamb, and Harmon, best known for designing the Empire State building. The building design incorporates Art Deco inspired motives and some Modernist architectural characters.

The North Building has a Park Avenue address, the 69th Street Entry serves as its main entry, and the building is also accessed via the 68th Street courtyard, through the Kaye Playhouse Lobby. Security desks are stationed at each of these entries. Additional entries on Park Avenue and the 68th Street courtyard are currently used for egress only.

It is anticipated that the project scope of work for the renovation of the Assembly Hall (Auditorium) within Hunter College’s occupied and operational North Building will establish the facility as a state-of-the-art, major, multi-purpose, flexible, ceremonial and performance venue and performing arts hub, and will include theater specialized renovation and construction work, related MEP, structural, and  several specialty trades, such as, but not limited to, acoustical, lighting, audio-visual, tele-communications, environmental/hazmat, etc., as may be required.
