Hangar Building 100 Renovation
C&S was the architect, engineer, and construction manager for the addition and renovation of the central core for Building 100 at Griffiss International Airport. A 3,000-square-foot front entrance addition brings the newly-renovated core to 43,000 square feet across three stories. In addition, an 11,000-square-foot state of the art optics lab was built out in the adjacent hangar.
The addition adds a tall modern entrance with a three-story atrium, monumental stair, and large windows to bring an abundance of light into the lobbies of the offices within. The existing core was built out with clean room lab space, private offices, and reconfigurable open office spaces.
The challenge of a low concrete deck height in the renovated core was accommodated with open ceilings, exposed mechanical systems, and distinctive lighting to accent and enhance the space. Light, vibrant interior finishes work to expand the space visually while the dark ceiling disappears behind the contrasting lighting. The project won a 2022 ACEC NY Gold Award for Engineering Excellence.
