SUNY Oneonta Alumni Hall Rehabilitation Wins Platinum from ACEC New York

Author: Erdman Anthony/Thursday, March 7, 2024/Categories: Awards

ROCHESTER, NY, March 7, 2024 — Erdman Anthony, a Rochester, NY-based, multidisciplinary firm specializing in infrastructure engineering and support services, has received an American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) of New York 2024 Engineering Excellence Award for their Building/Technology Systems project, the SUNY Oneonta Alumni Hall Rehabilitation. The project is being recognized with a Platinum award.

Erdman Anthony provided SUNY Oneonta with mechanical, electrical, and plumbing design, energy modeling, and energy efficiency services for this project. The rehabilitation included complete replacement and reinstallation of the HVAC, electrical, plumbing, IT systems and a new fire protection system, throughout the 60+ year old building. Each system uses electric for performance, including HVAC systems with electric ground-source heat pumps. This approach has eliminated reliance on fossil fuels for this 47,600-gross-square-foot building, which also met LEED-Gold standards. The new space also contains state-of-the art technology, small group study areas, and specialty spaces with informal learning areas throughout.

The goal of the project was to create a vibrant home for the School of Economics and Business and College Advancement. SUNY Oneonta has achieved that by providing their building occupants with enhanced learning and working experiences, which also serves the school’s recruitment goals. Erdman Anthony is proud to have helped SUNY Oneonta build their community at Alumni Hall.

Each year, over 50 member firms submit both public and private sector projects to the Engineering Excellence Awards that are judged on a rigorous set of criteria. This project will be honored at the 57th Annual Engineering Excellence Awards Gala, which will take place in New York City next month. The Engineering Excellence Awards program is a celebration that also helps to publicize the many significant contributions consulting engineers make to the built environment throughout the world.

For 70 years, Erdman Anthony has provided infrastructure engineering and support services to private industry and government clients. The multidisciplinary firm employs 250 people, including over 80 professional engineers and professional land surveyors, throughout its offices in Albany, Buffalo, and Rochester, New York; Harrisburg and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; West Palm Beach, Florida; Leesburg, Virginia; and Columbia, Maryland.
