SUNY College at Buffalo - Technology Building

Buffalo State College, was established in 1871 and is the largest comprehensive four year college in the SUNY system. This LEED Gold-certified building marks another milestone in Buffalo State's construction boom that includes nearly $350 million in new development and improvements to campus.

The newly constructed 87,000 square foot Technology Building is located on the former site of the Buffalo Psychiatric Center's laundry and bakery buildings, just south of the college's Classroom Building. The building opened in time for the beginning of the 2013 fall semester and houses three popular departments within the School of the Professions: Engineering Technology, Computer Information Systems, and Fashion and Textile Technology.

The new building is 35% more energy efficient than another facility of the same size and build. It is equipped with PV solar panels on the roof that produce 50 kilowatts of electricity, as well as a vegetated lower roof that helps reduce storm water runoff, heating and cooling.
