PLATTSBURGH, N.Y.- The State University of New York at Plattsburgh broke ground on its new School of Business + Economics/Computer Science building, designed by Gwathmey Siegel Kaufman + Associates Architects. The LEED project is the first new academic building to be constructed on the university campus in more than 30 years. “The campus at SUNY Plattsburgh is spectacular, combining the breathtaking natural beauty of the Chaplain Valley with an intelligent built environment,” said Robert Siegel, one of the founders of Gwathmey Siegel who led the design team. “This new academic building will add sensitively to its surroundings while providing state-of-the-art facilities for students and faculty.
