Built in 1921 for Endicott-Johnson Shoe Company, the 6-story building at 48 Corliss Avenue, Johnson City, New York is seeing new life as the home of the Corliss Ave. Nursing School for SUNY Binghamton.

BR Johnson’s role in the renovations included new fixed aluminum storefront windows complete with muntin grids to replicate the original steel windows, a new all-glass exterior stair tower, a new revolving door, exterior aluminum entrances, interior aluminum storefront framing and extensive interior glazing in office doors.

Most of the exterior aluminum storefront windows incorporate electrically-tintable insulated glass for optimal energy efficiency and interior aluminum storefronts at simulated hospital room have electrically switchable glass that opaque for privacy at the flip of a switch. The glass in the stair tower are triple-glazed high performance Low-E that were set with the use of a crane due to the size and weight of the glass units.

The classrooms in the new addition include a folding partition wall that stacks vertically up into the ceiling, as well as several traditional side-stacking moveable partitions in several rooms.
