Educational Opportunity Center, University at Buffalo
We provided the structural design for this $26 million, 65,000-square-foot steel-framed building. The facility is comprised of a four-story structure with an enclosed rooftop penthouse above, a one-story structure housing the Bethel Head Start childcare program, and one story entrance structure connecting the new building to an existing multi-story building.
The first floor features a conference center, enrollment management office, career services suite, and support spaces. Classrooms, faculty and administrative offices, a computer lab, library, and student and faculty lounges make up the top three floors.
