EYP Announces The Establishment Of Expanded Headquarters And Operations At The Ualbany Nanocollege

Albany, NY | Posted on November 5th, 2010

Rejecting opportunities to move outside of New York State, EYP Architecture and Engineering PC ("EYP") of Albany today announced plans to remain in the Capital Region and establish expanded headquarters and operations at the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering ("CNSE") of the University at Albany, further building a partnership that will enable EYP to grow its workforce and give it a critical competitive advantage in the expanding market for design and engineering of energy efficient and environmentally friendly "green" high-tech buildings.

Beginning in early 2011, more than 130 EYP executives, managers, architects, designers and engineers will locate at EYP's new expanded headquarters at CNSE's Albany NanoTech Complex, joining members of the EYP/energy group, which opened an office at the UAlbany NanoCollege last year. EYP expects to grow its employee base rapidly as it leverages the unparalleled intellectual and technological resources at CNSE to integrate nanotechnology innovations into state-of-the-art high-tech buildings, enabling new business opportunities in the rising green energy market.

To further expand the partnership, EYP and CNSE also plan to work jointly to establish a high-tech incubator that will support and anchor emerging technology companies - particularly in the information technology and clean energy sectors - through redevelopment and reuse of underutilized downtown office space in the Tri-City area. The incubator is expected to attract 20 to 30 companies employing more than 200 technology professionals over the next five years.

EYP President and CEO Tom Birdsey said, "As an Albany-based firm with deep local roots, EYP is excited to have found the perfect home for its headquarters at the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering in Albany. Our decision to remain and grow in this region was made possible by our ability to locate at CNSE's world-class Albany NanoTech Complex, which accommodates our critical needs for additional space and access to state-of-the-art resources and technologies that will give us a competitive advantage in the growing market for green building design and engineering. We are thrilled with the opportunity to build our partnership with CNSE, and look forward to the additional job growth and business opportunities it will afford EYP."

CNSE Senior Vice President and Chief Executive Officer Dr. Alain E. Kaloyeros said, "The UAlbany NanoCollege is excited to welcome the headquarters and operations of EYP, recognized worldwide as a leader in architecture, engineering and design of high-tech green energy facilities, to CNSE's ever-expanding Albany NanoTech Complex. The growing partnership between EYP and CNSE will enhance the leading-edge capabilities that are essential to accelerate the integration of innovative clean and renewable energy technologies, and in turn position CNSE and New York State as a desired location for the further attraction of green collar jobs, companies and investment in the future. We also look forward to working with EYP to launch a high-tech incubator for the attraction and spin-off of IT and energy companies at an appropriate downtown location in the Tri-City area."

Through its presence at CNSE, EYP will have unique access to development and testing of nanomaterials and nanoelectronics for clean energy technologies such as fuel cells, solar photovoltaic cells, ultracapacitors and power electronics integral to building design and operation. It will also have opportunities to engage in educational and workforce training programs to prepare building designers, architects and operators to utilize nanoscale-enabled sensors, controls and other innovations for the construction and operation of high-tech facilities.

EYP and CNSE initially partnered in January 2007 to create the $3.5 million National Institute for Sustainable Energy ("NISE"), a world-class center for zero energy and sustainability research and development, business advancement, commercialization and workforce training. Those efforts were enhanced by the opening of an EYP/energy office at CNSE last December, as well as the launch of a leading-edge Alternative Energy Test Farm, which provides for the evaluation and testing of zero energy concepts and technologies.
