Mac MacMurray presents the ACEC Award to OCC President Dr. Debbie Sydow

On Thursday, June 14, Mac MacMurray, chairman of C&S, presented Dr. Debbie Sydow, president of Onondaga Community College, with a 2012  American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) Engineering Excellence award that C&S received for the design of renovations to Onondaga Community College’s Mulroy Hall.

OCC’s Mulroy Hall

Mulroy Hall, recently dedicated in honor of the late former County Executive John H. Mulroy, is, a historic 45,000-square-foot, four-story building, and was originally constructed in 1928 as a home for the poor and ill. The building had stood unused for more than 10 years and needed major renovations. This innovative project gave the college a “historically modern” building with 15 smart classrooms, 47 offices, 3 conference rooms, and 3 group meeting rooms. C&S provided architectural, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, structural, hazardous materials, life safety, and landscape architecture services. In addition to reconfiguring interior partitions, many elements needed to be replaced, including the roof, exterior doors and windows, all interior finishes, and the complete heating, ventilation, plumbing, and security systems. C&S received a Silver award for the project from ACEC.

ACEC is the voice of America’s engineering industry. The more than 5,500 firms comprising the council’s membership are engaged in a wide range of engineering works that propel the nation’s economy, and enhance and safeguardAmerica’s quality of life.
