120 State Street is a modernist white marble clad structure with modest Art Deco architectural features. The building is listed on the National Register for Historic Places. Recently the building has undergone interior renovations on each of the 5 floors. Buildings and General Services (BGS) is planning a deep energy retrofit for the building within the next 10 years. The project’s egress and accessibility issues are currently in the schematic design phase. All work completed under this project will complement the future project.
The limited scope of the project is to redesign the rear entry, accessible entrance, stair towers and freight elevator to meet compliance with current codes. Since a good portion of the foundation will be excavated in order to complete the life safety project, waterproofing the foundation to resolve the ground water infiltration problem has been added to the scope.
