HVCC New Science Center
Troy, New York
Mosaic was retained to design a 100,000-square-foot, $35 million new science center for Hudson Valley Community College, completed in Fall 2013. Designed to achieve LEED Silver Certification, the new Science Center integrates science departments and programs that were scattered throughout campus. The flagship facility stands prominently at the edge of campus, creating a distinct identity for HVCC and embracing the campus’ commitment to their students, faculty and staff.
“Hudson Valley Community College must be poised to offer a 21st-century education that meets the needs of the 21st-century workforce,” said HVCC President Drew Matonak. “To do this, the college’s academic buildings must have the academic atmosphere and technology that empowers students to learn and to thrive in 21st-century laboratory settings.”
Mosaic’s teaming arrangement, a significant attribute in the selection process, resulted in a unique and vital combination of design and engineering experts. Working together with Payette and Vanderweil out of Boston, and Ryan-Biggs, the LA Group and Ambient Environmental from the Capital Region, our team delivered a state-of-the-art science facility that defines HVCC as one of the most outstanding and competitive community colleges in our nation. The remaining construction budget of $19 million was used to renovate surrounding academic buildings.
