Featured elements of Glenn Rieder’s work on this project include:

  • Over 12,000 square feet of blueprint-matched, quarter sliced and figured English Sycamore wood panels in the atrium and monumental stair areas.
  • Over 4,000 square feet of blueprint-matched, plain sliced Maple paneling with horizontal grain orientation with sequenced Maple doors and built-in casework furniture in the form of benches and desks within the trial courtroom.
  • 8,000 square feet of blueprint-matched Cherry wood wall paneling and built-in matching Cherry bookshelves and casework.
  • Over 600 custom built student lockers that include Cherry wood paneled doors.

“After careful consideration and evaluation, we selected the team from Glenn Rieder because of their high quality of work. From the beginning, the Eckstein Hall project was about delivering an excellent building, a building which would redefine Law School Facilities and achieve recognition as “The best Law School building in the country”. The work completed by Glenn Rieder exceeded our expectations. The attention to detail, the thoughtful suggestions from talented craftsmen to assist with design refinement and the fact that the high quality product was delivered on time, on budget all stand out in our mind as significant reasons that the Glenn Rieder team is a group we will work with again. Visitors to Eckstein Hall encounter the beautiful wood interior finishes in every significant room in the building and we are happy to say the quality of the millwork has drawn praise from each and every visitor”.
