Project Description

As a primary focus of the New York State Facilities Modernization Program, the Alfred E. Smith building is a historic State of New York building that went through major renovations to meet tenant requirements; as well as current building codes and 21st Century technology needs. HVAC modernizations within this historic structure provided the tenants, diverse state agencies, with a modern, technologically current, flexible, and energy conscious office environment.

The restoration of this 34-story, 500,000 square foot building resulted in the prestigious Excellence in Historic Preservation Award from The Preservation League of New York State.
