Project : Harriman State Office Campus Business Services Center

New York State Office of General Services -- Albany, New York

As part of the 2012-13 Executive Budget, Governor Cuomo called for the establishment of the Business Services Center office building as part of his plan to reimagine state government. Located at the Harriman State Campus in Albany, New York, this 6-story, 237,000 sq. ft. facility consolidates human resources and finance services that had been distributed across 22 New York State agencies.

Prior to rehabilitating the interiors and building envelope, CHA performed asbestos abatement of spray-on fire proofing. Renovation work included replacement of the entire HVAC system with variable air volume (VAV) units, ductwork and fin tube perimeter heating, temporary heat and chilled water, and structural engineering modifications. Architectural design included new program spaces such as training conference rooms, open office areas, enclave rooms, secured high-density storage areas, and ADA-compliant toilet rooms. All floors feature acoustical ceiling systems and are appointed with new wall and floor finishes. CHA’s scope also included underground site utility connections and overall project management services.
