The Center of Excellence is located at the Integrated Technology Complex on Binghamton University’s campus. The $30 million, 114,000-square-foot Center of Excellence provides space for expansion and consolidation of Binghamton University’s New York State Center of Excellence in Small Scale Systems Integration and Packaging (S3IP) and its interdisciplinary, inter-institutional teams of scientists and engineers.

The two-story glass, metal and stone building features open laboratory space, the 140-seat Symposium Hall and offices that support Binghamton University’s ongoing and expanding industry partnerships.

Built to LEED standards, in addition to controlling outside air quantities through the Aircuity OptiNet system in 38 zones, the building has energy-efficient windows and skylights; a water retention system; penthouse-mounted mechanical systems; the latest technology for heat recovery and humidity control; and a U-shaped atrium with natural ventilation, an adaptive cooling, hydronic heating and radiant floor heat system; numerous windows that are controlled by the temperature within the atrium; and a water feature that uses re-circulated water.
