ABOUT THIS PROJECT:

The Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism educates and trains students from all over world to become accomplished professional journalists. The David and Helen Gurley Brown Institute for Media Innovation is being established at Columbia and Stanford Universities to inspire and support the creation and development of innovations in media with the potential to inform and entertain in transformative ways. This institute, the first of its kind in higher education, will provide endowed faculty chairs, fellowships for students and support for developing creative artifacts and prototypes that demonstrate new approaches to media delivery and consumption or support the development of new sustainable business models.

The main purpose of the new space will be to provide the School with a unique, state-of-the-art multi-media newsroom which will merge the delivery of multiple disciplines of television and radio. Working collaboratively, students, postdoctoral fellows, faculty, and industry leaders will experiment with new technologies and create innovative content and delivery formats, in fulfillment of the research function of the institute.

The physical epicenter of the institute will be at the Columbia University School of Journalism and requires the renovation of approximately 4,500 gross square feet of existing space on the 200 level of the Journalism building with some minor corresponding modification to the 100 level directly below the space. The large, double-height ground-floor suite at the eastern end will be re-configured to make the institute into a highly visible signature space.

The project scope will include abatement of hazardous materials and demolition followed by a full interior fit out of the space and supporting infrastructure including mechanical, electrical, plumbing, fire safety systems and structural. In coordination with the project the exterior windows also will be replaced with new energy efficient replacements as part of CUF's ongoing campus-wide SOGR project.
