Project Description

Croxton Collaborative Architects has transformed a 75,000 sf obsolete 1967 Brutalist concrete structure into a high-performing and state-of-the-art, multi-purpose academic facility at the heart of SUNY New Paltz campus.

Creative re-programming resulted in the accommodation of an expanded Food Service facility and a complete Student Service program within the same building envelope and achieved a 26% savings in the net programmatic space for Student Service Components through the use of shared facilities. Relocation and consolidation of services within the building achieved Food Service Facility and Student Services on the Ground Level and Student Lounge, Café, and Teaching/Faculty spaces for the Departments of Psychology, Anthropology, and Engineering on the upper two levels.

The Wooster building rehabilitation is resourceful, responsive, humanistic, and sustainable. Pragmatic, straightforward and on budget, it achieves 8 major milestones:

• A continuous, high-performance building envelope and MEP systems
• Enhanced flexibility, connectivity and continuity of the three major floor elevations
• Connection of the two Academic Quads at two grade levels
• Integration of Campus circulation paths with new student spaces, inside and out
• Integration of Food Service Facilities into the campus circulation
• Elimination of all regulatory (ADA, building and energy code, etc.) functional deficiencies

New York State high-performance energy efficiency financial incentives (awarded); and LEED Gold rating.
