In late 2017, the Griffiss Local Development Corporation approached MARCH with the desire to build a new two story office building at the Griffiss Technology Park. Soon thereafter, NYSTEC came aboard to not only become a building tenant, but to make this new facility their company headquarters and become partial building owners.
This project was broken up into two phases; Phase 1 being construction of the building shell and core and Phase 2 being the second floor fit-out for NYSTEC. Construction for phase 1 began in the fall of 2018 and was substantially complete in early September of 2019. The phase 2 fit-out for NYSTEC got underway in April of 2019 and was ready for move-in by NYSTEC in late September of 2019.
The approximately 32,000 SF office building is state-of-the-art. NYSTEC’s second floor suite is designed to accommodate the modern, transient employee with various types of work zones and collaboration spaces. The suite is also furnished with PoE (power over ethernet) lighting and window shade control, which is the first of its kind in central New York. The two first floor suites are currently under renovation for another tenant and is expected to be complete in 2020. QPK Design provided interior design services to NYSTEC as part of the fit-out, while roi Office Interiors worked with NYSTEC to provide all office furniture and partitions.
