HHL Architects was engaged by the State University Construction Fund to develop an updated academic program and a concept building design. Simultaneously, HHL was engaged to develop a similar plan for the EOC in Buffalo.
Utilizing SUNY space standards, HHL developed a new program model to make the program fit the EOC’s updated 21st century program goals. The plan includes assembly space for students and the public, an academic commons area and resource center for student/teacher collaboration, classrooms, laboratories, and administrative spaces. The study included a test build-out of the existing facility in addition to alternative building designs at other city sites.
