Next in the complex is Thurston Hall, named for Robert Henry Thurston who was director of the Sibley School in the late 1800s.

The glass windows in the hallway on the first floor provide a bird’s-eye view of the George Winter High Bay, one of the components of the Bovay Civil Infrastructure Laboratory complex, a facility of the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering. This facility supports the NSF-funded George E. Brown, Jr. Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation (NEES), of which Cornell is one of 15 nationalsites. The Cornell NEES site is designed for testing lifelines,for example, evaluating theeffects of earthquake-induced ground rupture on polyethylene and welded steel pipelines
