“Part of a $185 million construction project, this is the most technologically advanced building on campus,” said President Keen. “We are so pleased to see the final result. The campus revitalization is thrilling for all of us.”

The new, three-story, $19.3-million School of Business is one of the most architecturally prominent and technologically advanced higher education structures in the Northeast, according to Stalco Construction principal Kevin G, Harney.

“The building, which is aiming for LEED Silver certification, features a striking, modern façade, expansive glass curtain wall, and a high number of environmentally responsible design and engineering solutions,” said Harney.

“The school’s energy efficiency performance exceeds New York State’s requirements by 30%. The construction cost of the project was $19 million.”

The new building is a part of the college’s $185 million campus improvement plan aimed at accommodating the college’s increasing enrollment, which recently reached 8,474.
