SUNY Albany, New Business School
Size/Type: 95,000 sq. ft. / New Construction
Budget: $32 Million
Architect: Perkins + Will
Location: Albany, NY
Scheduled Duration: 31 Months
The University of Albany required a new facility to create a hub of learning and innovation to enhance their programs and also solidify their reputation as a leading business school. The building will feature technologically-advanced classrooms and meeting spaces, breakout rooms for team projects, student reception areas, collaborative research centers, and a trading room featuring Bloomberg terminals.
At entry level, the two-story concourse creates a pedestrian street, linking various business programs within the building, and the trading lab adjacent to the main entry. These spaces, and the second-level “living room”, will encourage informal gathering, inter-program collaboration, and extended learning outside the classroom. Other key program elements include: expanded space for career services, graduate assistant work space, and a café with an outdoor garden.
Under construction within their active campus, the project requires an evolving logistics plan as the project progresses and ongoing communication with the campus community.

Bard College, renowned for its liberal and peforming arts education programs, received a generous gift from its alumnus, physiologist and writer László Z. Bitó, to construct a state-of-the art music teaching and performance facility.
The 17,000 sq. ft. László Z. Bitó Music Conservatory Building will house fifteen learning studios and a teaching classroom, complementing an intimate 2,400 sq. ft. performance space. The performance space, seating an audience of up to 145 people, is designed to be flexible, accommodating a range of performance types in a variety of configurations. It will be equipped with audio and video recording and live-streaming technology. The architectural hallmark of the space is its adornment with custom-fabricated millwork panels, which define the space both visually and acoustically.
The building’s modern, curving façade and upswept roof line, accented with both glass and natural wood detailing, evoke the artistic creativity occurring within. Heating and cooling of the building will take advantage of environmentally friendly geothermal heat pump technology.
The U.S. National Archives and Records Administration, Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library & Museum
Size/Type: 20,000 sq. ft. / Renovation
Budget: $18 Million
Architect: EYP Architects and Engineers
Location: Hyde Park, NY
Scheduled Duration: 17 months
The Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum is America’s first presidential library and the only one used by a sitting president. It was conceived and built under President Roosevelt’s direction and opened to the public in 1941.
With the exception of two wings added in 1972, in honor of Mrs. Roosevelt, this will be the first renovation to the building since it was completed.
The renovation carefully preserved the building’s historic appearance, while bringing its archives and museum up to the National Archives’s standards for the long-term preservation of historic collections. The building houses 35,000 museum objects and 20 million pages of documents. The scope of work included new drainage, plumbing, and roofing systems and new electrical, security and fire protection systems. The building was made full ADA compliant. Work was managed around the occupied building ensuring that visitors were still able to access the collections and tour the site. Funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, the project will be completed in two phases with the second phase of the project now underway.
