    This project was developed by the students of the Civil Engineering Technology Fall 2017 Capstone Design class of the State University of New York Polytechnic Institute. This class is a prerequisite to the conferment of a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Civil Engineering Technology from the institution. This project focuses on the New York State Thruway Exit 31 interchange in Utica, New York. The primary objective was to analyze discrepancies and propose preliminary corrections for the outlook area with regards to the flow of traffic, adherence to standardized roadway regulations, and overall quality of life improvement.

    Nueva Era Engineering was tasked with providing engineering plans and specifications for a commercial tenant, which would take advantage of the proximity to major transportation routes, excellent location relative to urban center of Utica, NY, and the proposed downtown hospital that is currently in planning stages. The structure will be a two-story Medical Office building containing an Urgent care unit and an Outpatient Surgical Facility. The building will sit on a 5.6acre lot that is the former site of the Utica Municipal Housing Authority complex, just north of Whitesboro Street.

    New Call-Center Office Building: CTC490 Spring 2015
    (Twelve North Engineering, 2015-04-30) Twelve North Engineering
    For the spring 2015 Capstone class, the class was asked to design a Call center to be located on Judd Road in Oriskany New York. The overall project goal is to provide engineering plans and specifications for a commercial tenant at the site, which takes advantage of the proximity to major transportation routes, excellent location relative to the urban center of Utica, and the presence of government agencies to provide entitlement funding, also situated in Utica, New York. The design team overall goal is to create a site that is not only functional, but also aesthetically pleasing. This should be a site that is easy for maintenance and ground crews to maintain, and one that will also be able to retain its value for several years without redesign or needless additions. Along with being functional, it is a goal to be self-sustaining and reuse as many natural resources as possible.
