Monroe Community College
Downtown Campus, Interior Design and Purchasing
Monroe Community College (MCC)
Project: Monroe Community College Downtown Campus (SUNY)
DASNY’s Role: DASNY managed interior design and assisted with the purchasing of furniture and equipment for Monroe Community College’s Downtown Campus.
Details: Monroe Community College (MCC) $78 million, 255,000-square-foot Downtown Campus spreads across seven floors on State Street in Rochester and opened in the fall of 2017.
DASNY managed every aspect of procurement, including budget development and the integration of MWBE inclusion. DASNY completed the project about $1 million under budget with an MWBE participation rate of above 50 percent.
Impact: The top floor of the Downtown Campus houses MCC’s nationally recognized Economic & Workforce Development Center, enabling it to continue to grow and serve the community’s workforce needs. The redesign has allowed the Center to expand credit and noncredit programming and professional development opportunities, as well as to develop and enhance ties with Rochester businesses and community groups.
Students benefit from the reimagined space, where DASNY-designed interiors provide flexible classrooms and laboratories with rolling chairs and tables, and desks integrated with computer technology. Bright colors throughout create a welcoming, energetic vibe.
