You are invited to a groundbreaking ceremony, as we mark the transformation of the Mechanical Building into the Paul & Mary Calice and Mildred Barton Advanced Manufacturing Center.

Home to many of SUNY Broome’s technical programs, the Mechanical Building was among the first to be built on the college’s Dickinson campus. This extensive renovation project will re-invent this space, updating it with the latest technology, from a geothermal system that harnesses the energy stored in the earth to an advanced manufacturing center that will house a clean room, a food processing laboratory, a fermentation science lab and a high-tech soldering lab.

The building will be renamed in accordance with stipulations laid out by the late Emil Calice, who had donated his $11 million estate to the Broome Community College Foundation.

The ceremony will be held at 11 a.m. on Thursday, Sept. 21, 2017, between the Mechanical Building and the Natural Science Center on the SUNY Broome campus.
