Emerging Technology and Entrepreneurship Complex (ETEC)

Client: Albany State, State University of New York
Albany, NY

Completion Date: 2021

Project Role: MWBE & EEO Compliance Monitoring & Reporting

Project Value: $140M

Description: The Emerging Technology and Entrepreneurship Complex (ETEC) serves as the home of the University’s new College of Emergency Preparedness, Homeland Security and Cybersecurity (CEHC) as well as the University’s nationally recognized research and instruction in atmospheric sciences.

Landon & Rian Enterprises, Inc. provided Project Engineering as part of the Construction Management team and MWBE & EEO Compliance Monitoring & Reporting services on both the pre-bid (Outreach) and construction phases of the project. This project is a NY-SUNY 2020 Challenge Grant construction project, which required SUNY Albany to follow the New York State Article 15-A guidelines. L & R’s compliance team reviewed EEO participation, along with performing commercially useful function (CUF) reviews of MWBE subcontractors. This information was collected along with MWBE payments, proof of payments and EEO certified hours. The information was then put into a compliance report and provided to NYS Construction Fund’s opportunity group on a monthly basis.

The 236,000 sq. ft. ETEC project was built on a 12-acre parcel on the Harriman Campus directly adjacent to the main Albany Campus. ETEC serves as a catalyst for advancements in research and technology development, collocating university researchers, students, private partners, and business development services.
