Syracuse center of excellence
The Syracuse Center of Excellence in Energy and Environmental Systems is a new 55,000-square-foot research center that brings together more than 200 institutes, companies, and academic programs to work on environmental technology research and promotion. The building anchors the corridor linking the city center and the university campus and is located on a remediated brownfield site in downtown Syracuse. The laboratories are arranged along a circulation path that also serves as a gallery, resulting in an accessible and welcoming design that attracts visitors to the site. The headquarters also houses the SyracuseCoE offices, classrooms, public spaces, and a ‘start up’ business incubation area, in addition to specialized research facilities.
The facility, which is referred to as a “living lab,” integrates cutting-edge technology for energy conservation, demonstrating its commitment to sustainability. Photovoltaic panels for electrical generation, a horizontal wind turbine, and a geothermal borefield that provides half of the heating and cooling needs are among the sustainable design strategies. The building’s narrow width encourages natural ventilation, daylighting, and panoramic views. The long, energy-efficient north and south façades maximize solar radiation in both summer and winter, and the north façade also provides acoustic insulation from the nearby highway.

EXCELLENCE CENTER OF SYRACUSE. UNIVERSITY OF SYRACUSE Designed to serve as a test bed for the Center’s environmental and energy technology and construction developments. Ashley McGraw was the Executive Architect for the 55,000 SF headquarters of the Syracuse Center of Excellence in Environmental and Energy Systems, which was built on a prominent brownfield site in downtown Syracuse. Natural ventilation, personal ventilation systems, heat recovery/reuse systems, rainwater capture/reuse, vegetative roofs, and geothermal ground source heat pumps are only a few of the sustainability techniques used in the building’s architecture.
The US Green Building Council awarded the structure LEED Platinum certification.
The project’s construction was finished in 2010. The lab wing, however, was not included in the phase 1 project. The labs were supposed to be completed one by one as funding became available. Ashley McGraw was hired by Syracuse University in 2011 to conduct a planning report for four labs: a Thermal Lab, a Combustion Lab, a Hot Water Heater Testing Tab, and a Biofuels Pilot Facility.

To evaluate and design a 4,000 square foot media center and library addition to the Syracuse Center of Excellence in Environmental and Energy Systems – SyracuseCoE – architectural firm Ashley McGraw chose IES Virtual Environment performance analysis software.
Ashley McGraw, who works for the Liverpool Central school district in Syracuse, New York, used the VE modules MicroFlo (airflow CFD) and ApacheSim (thermal simulation) to effectively calculate the building’s energy usage and obtain direct feedback during the design process, reducing their overall workload.
The SyracuseCoE is a cutting-edge high-performance “green” structure. It was completed in March 2010 and received a Platinum rating from the US Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) program. This iconic, high-performance “living laboratory” is the realization of a dream shared by leaders in government, business, and academia to build a world-renowned location for partnerships on global challenges in clean and renewable energy, indoor environmental quality, and water management.
Intelligence community centers for academic excellence
According to a Syracuse University News release, the Syracuse Center of Excellence is accepting applications for its Faculty Fellows Program until Sunday, which offers seed funds for initiatives focusing on sustainable and renewable energy, indoor environmental quality, and water management.
SyracuseCoE, which is led by SU and partly funded by the state of New York, brings together faculty, students, and partners from more than 200 companies and organizations to encourage technologies that promote healthy buildings and safer, greener cities, according to the SyracuseCoE website.
The program will grant $10,000 to faculty members whose projects comply with the program’s objectives, according to Chetna Chianese, SyracuseCoE’s associate director of research. Projects involving multiple faculty members can request up to $20,000.
Chianese said, “We try to look for ideas that will discuss how the faculty will maximize the funding.” “The aim is to spark new research,” says the author. In some cases, the university does this as well, so we’re concentrating on the environment.”
