Project Description

The Palombo Group has the honor of overseeing construction and cost estimating for Suny Ulster’s Ulster Works program, located at the Kingston Business Resource Center. The Business Resource Center is the former Sophie Finn Elementary School buidling and is included in the State and National Register of Historic Places. The building’s significance comes from the fact that it was designed by Perkins & Will, whose firm helped pioneer the design ideals reflected there. The SUNY Ulster project was created so as not to interfere with the original building’s design. Work began in March 2014 and is currently under way.

The SUNY Ulster Kingston Business Resource Center houses many exciting career training programs for high school students, including a small police academy. Additionally, several job fairs and many workshops are provided for high school students as well as adults. Being in the heart of Kingston, it is more easily accessible for students with travel issues than the more remote main campus in Stone Ridge.

There are many green initiatives that are taking place there, and The Palombo Group is excited to be a part of creating such a wonderful asset for Ulster County and the community at large.
