SUNY College at Geneseo - Rehabilitate Bailey Hall
The Consultant team led by SWBR Architects, with input from SUNY College at Geneseo and the State University Construction Fund, has developed a design that will radically reconfigure Bailey Hall from a “hard” sciences building into a social sciences center facing the campus’ formal college green. Currently located in other campus academic buildings, the Psychology, Sociology, Geography, and Anthropology programs will move into modern, comfortable, and sustainably-designed areas designed both for their specific current needs and future flexibility in the rehabilitated facilityBailey Hall will include shared spaces including 10 general-use classrooms, casual interaction space for students and faculty, and a central two-story atrium that provides student common space. The concepts also reflect the intention of the Fund, and requirements of NYS Executive Order 111, to design the rehabilitated Bailey Hall facility to a LEED-Silver level of sustainability based on the USGBC’s LEED-NC 2.2 system, under which this project has been registered. The building is designed to achieve an energy use level of 25% below what would be permitted by the NYS Energy Code.
