The firm was reluctant to fulfill the request, SUNY Plattsburgh Vice President for Administration John Homburger told the Press-Republican at the time, as it felt the workmanship was acceptable.
Ultimately, however, the wall was rebuilt, and the contractor agreed to cover the additional cost, according to college Director of Public Relations and Publications Michelle Ouellette.
While the building will soon open its doors to students, it has yet to be given an official name.
“It’s safe to say the college is still looking at options in the near term, but our preference in the long term would be to have a naming gift come in,” Bryce Hoffman, executive director of marketing and communications, told the Press-Republican in an email.
“I can’t put an exact price tag on it, but to name the building in perpetuity for a donor would require a gift of several million dollars.”
