A ceremony was held today to mark the ahead-of-schedule completion of the steel frame of the $125 million dollar Quad-C building at SUNY IT

The Computer Chip Commercialization Center is a key component of Governor Cuomo’s $1.5 billion “Nano Utica” initiative.

Alain Kaloyeros, Vice President of the SUNY College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering, says the public-private partnership will lead to more than 15-hundred new high-tech jobs on the SUNY IT campus.

Lt. Governor Robert Duffy, Oneida County Executive Anthony Picente, Senator Joseph Griffo, Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi, Utica Mayor Robert Palmieri and Rome Mayor Joe Fusco were at today’s event.

To commemorate the construction milestone, community leaders and elected officials signed a gleaming white steel beam.

Construction will be completed by the end of the year.
