Installation of the building envelope continues at the first building of Columbia University's Manhattanville Campus expansion, reaching the sixth floor.  In total, the building's 10-story enclosure contains approximately 175, 988 square feet of wall surface among six different wall types, including double skin glass curtain wall and structural facades.  The building envelope strategy will help in the pursuit of certification for the newly established LEED Neighborhood Design, a pilot program of the sustainability focused building rating organization.
