United Nations
New York City 2001-2003

The United Nations began a major renovation program in 2001. CLA was asked to create the first set of digital drawings of the entire New York campus. Working from the original drawing for all of the UN buildings and from extensive on site measurements, the CLA team produced the master set in use today.

As part of the renovation program, CLA, working with the Renato Sarno Group, oversaw the restoration and upgrade of the entire General Assembly ceiling. The work entailed new lighting, sprinklers, and acoustic treatment of this historic landmark.

CLA was also part of the team that restored the Dag Hammarskjold Auditorium in the UN Library building, another Modern Movement architectural landmark.
