New dorm opens at Brockport

New dorm opens at Brockport

The College at Brockport officially opened its newest dormitory Thursday with a ribbon cutting for the $24 million, 263-bed residence.

Eagle Hall also includes a smart classroom, multipurpose rooms and soundproof study rooms. Each floor of the four-story building has a lounge and kitchen. Dorm rooms include their own private bathrooms.  The building’s main-floor lounge opens onto a patio with a fire pit.

Construction took just a little over a year, owing to the Dormitory Authority of the State of New York using “design-build,” a single contract for both design and construction that helps expedite a project.

“I was very impressed with the efficiency of the construction process,” said Brockport President Heidi Macpherson. “A little over a year ago we broke ground. Now I see a state-of-the-art residence hall filled with students. Utilizing design-build allowed us to provide our students with a high quality, affordable residence hall and continue to make The College at Brockport a great place for our students to live and learn.”

Representatives of DASNY said the “design-build” process may be used for other state projects to speed them along, saving money.

“With design-build, we were able to execute the project within a compressed time frame, keeping costs down while maintaining a high level of quality,” said Gerrard P. Bushell, president and CEO of DASNY.

Eagle Hall was built to meet LEED-Silver specifications for energy efficiency and sustainability.
