Major changes are underway for the campus of SUNY College at Old Westbury as ground is now being cleared for the College's new 147,000-square-foot academic center. To be located adjacent to the existing Campus Center, the new building will provide needed academic space for the School of Arts and Sciences, School of Business and School of Education.
Resources in the new building will include 42 classrooms, one 150-seat lecture/conference room, five computer labs, and new administrative and faculty offices for each of the three academic schools. The facility will also have a café/student lounge and an outdoor patio.
Being constructed at a cost of $64 million, the building has been designed by Kliment Halsband Architects, a New York-based firm that has earned more than 50 design awards. Among many projects the firm has designed for institutions of higher education are The Languages and Literature Building at New York University, the Landman Library at Arcadia University, the Ebert Art Center at the College of Wooster, the Computer Science Building at Princeton University, and the Arts and Science Building at SUNY Albany.
Construction of the new building is expected to be completed in 2011.
