SUNY Broome Marks Opening Of New Science Center

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

SUNY Broome’s $21 million Natural Science Center has opened.

Construction on the three-story, 54,000 square-foot structure began in the spring of 2012.

A grand opening program to celebrate the completion of the facility will be held Thursday on the town of Dickinson campus.

SUNY Broome Community College president Kevin Drumm says the center went into use on September 3 for the beginning of fall semester classes.

Speaking on WNBF Radio’s Binghamton Now program, Drumm described it as a “stunningly beautiful building.”

Drumm noted the facility features new labs to replace aging facilities that had been in use for several decades.

The Natural Science Center houses SUNY Broome’s biology, chemistry and physical sciences departments.

The building meets certain standards to make it more environmentally-friendly. Drumm said the facility is the first “LEED-certified” building in the history of the college. LEED stands for “leadership in in energy and environmental design” in a program that encourages the use of “green building” techniques.
