$23M Addison School Project Hits the Home Stretch

The Addison school district’s $23 million capital project is in the home stretch, with the final major piece still under construction - a new gymnasium - expected to be finished by December, and possibly sooner. The project includes a new middle school wing, a new high school gymnasium, a revamped athletic complex and major infrastructure work a Tuscarora Elementary School.

Like No Other: Take a Tour of the New MacArthur

Rising from the once-flooded bed of land on Vestal Avenue in the South Side of Binghamton is a remarkable new school building, one outfitted with state-of-the-art technology and built with the students and staff — and the nearby Susquehanna River — in mind. With a total project price tag of about $79.5 million, the new MacArthur is designed to promote experiential, collaborative learning indoors and out through a series of open spaces and a focus on sustainability.

Always Looking Ahead: ER Space Planning

With increases in patient volume in emergency rooms becoming the norm, hospitals have felt the negative effects on staff efficiency, quality of care, and patient flow and satisfaction. To better accommodate this influx of patients, many hospitals look to expand their existing emergency room or reconfigure existing space, which can be challenging due to their duration, cost, and effect on hospital operations; and, if not properly planned, can lead to spaces that do not meet your needs. However, those challenges can be minimized by proper space planning exercises on the front end of concept development.

Improving Schools the Smart Way: Smart Schools Funding

In the November 2014 New York State General Election, voters approved the Smart Schools Bond Act (SSBA), which authorized $2 billion of general obligation bonds to be issued to finance improved K-12 educational technology and infrastructure throughout all school districts in the state. The main idea behind SSBA is to provide funding for specific types of capital projects, including adding or upgrading technology, security, and pre-K learning spaces, to provide students with the educational tools, opportunities, and skills needed to succeed in the 21st century economy. After you first identify how much funding your district is eligible for, there are a few steps to take before submitting the required Smart Schools Investment Plan (SSIP) in order to get through the process smoothly.

Improving Subcontractor Safety

What happens when there is a safety incident or accident on your site? After treating the injured, the cause is reviewed and the on-site safety director determines how it could have been prevented. Because hindsight is 20/20, it is important to shift the focus to preventing accidents by unsafe behavior well before a shovel hits the ground. Therefore, what can higher education facilities managers and vice presidents specifically do to reduce error and improve subcontractor safety?
