SUNY University at Albany - Campus Center Expansion

Sienna Environmental Technologies provided Hazardous Materials consulting services to the University at Albany as a sub-consultant to William Rawn Associates, Architects, Inc. for the Campus Center renovations and expansion. Sienna's scope of work included inspection for Asbestos, Lead-based Paint and PCBs, and Abatement Design services to accommodate the extensive scope of work. 

This $75 million project renovated 46,000 square feet of the existing Campus Center and added an additional 76,000 square feet of space. The renovation portion of the project was primarily focused on rehabilitating the historically significant 1960's structure, focusing on the market style food service venue, and replacement of the existing central stair with a monumental stair and bridge enclosed by a curtain wall. The project involved extensive glazing replacement, and exterior renovations. 

Construction was conducted in two primary phases to allow the existing Campus Center to continually operate. Phase 1 involved construction and completion of the East Addition and construction of the West Addition. The East Addition opened after approximately 1 year of construction allowing work within the renovated area and Central Courtyard to begin.

Sienna provided the following scope of work for this project: 

  • Hazardous Materials Inspections for Asbestos, Lead-Based Paint, and Polychlorinated Biphenyls
  • Abatement Project Design
  • Construction Administration
