When Jim Reeners began building his new student housing building on Tompkins Street in Cortland, temperatures rose to around 50 degrees for about 24 hours on Dec. 1. That was just long enough for Reeners and his son Michael to pour a slab of concrete onto the ground.

Since the concrete was cured, the low temperatures have not affected the other aspects of construction, except for their comfort levels, Reeners said.
Inside Reeners' student housing building it was 20 degrees. Reeners said this is because heaters have not been installed yet, and the insulation in the ground just below the concrete slab is preventing the warm air from rising into the building. Reeners and his son Michael, the only two workers on the project, said after awhile their bodies become somewhat acclimated to the cold.
Heating the building would not be effective until the insulation in the roof is installed, Reeners said. "If you put any heat in this building you're heating Cortland, not the building," Reeners said. Reeners said they had planned to pour the concrete around Oct. 1, but in order to meet some building requirements, they had to wait until Dec. 1. He said he was sure that temperatures would rise at some point, so if it had not warmed he would have continued setting up the structure and waited for a warmer day. Reeners said he thinks the strategy of using plastic covers on a structure and using heaters to warm the ground enough to pour concrete is very inefficient. "You have to introduce enormous amounts of heat into the building to actually make it work," he said.

Local developer Jim Reeners said Monday that he is pleased a state Supreme Court justice dismissed a lawsuit Friday that sought to annul approval of his student housing project at 50 Tompkins St. "We felt the city had done the proper actions and were pleased that the judge agreed with us," Reeners said of his project at 50 Tompkins St. "We just kept going with the construction of the project." Reeners said the lawsuit caused no delays in the construction of the project's first building, which will be completed by August.

Filed on Nov. 13 by Henry and Lilliane Knabe, the owners of the 7 Valley Motel next to Reeners' property, the lawsuit alleged the Planning Commission failed to take "a hard look" at the project's environmental impacts by approving the demolition of a carriage house on the property without waiting for a recommendation from the state.
If the ruling had repealed the city's approval of the project, Reeners would have needed to present the site plans again, and the commission would have conducted another review of the environmental impacts.
The commission also allowed Reeners to tear down a vacant carriage house at the back of the property after taking photographs of the brick building.
