Catholic Health New Administrative Facility
Catholic Health consolidated 180,000 square feet of space scattered across eight different sites to 140,000 square feet in one location in Buffalo, NY. The new facility is home to 700 administrative professionals and includes a regional training center. C&S worked with the lead architect to complete the civil design and permitting for the site. This included placement of the new building and 700-vehicle parking garage, visitor parking and building access, loading dock areas, and site pedestrian access, including an outdoor patio area. Stormwater control is managed through a combination of subsurface detention and treatment. Bioretention areas treat a portion of the runoff generated from the parking garage with green infrastructure. Site access in two locations on Oak Street, as well as water and sewer connections, required careful coordination with the NYSDOT. This included obtaining the necessary permits and developing appropriate work zone traffic control plans so work could safely occur within the highway of this major arterial.
