New Project:  The Smithers Building, Buffalo NY
We are so excited to announce that we are joining the team to restore and redevelop the historic Smithers Building on Niagara Street, on Buffalo's West Side.  This is an early work of Louise Blanchard Bethune AIA and her firm, Bethune Bethune & Fuchs, dating from 1889.  Louise was the first woman to become a professional architect in the United States, and the first woman member of the American Institute of Architects. The Hotel Lafayette is her most well-known work, and this building predates it by about 15 years.

More details on schedule and redevelopment plans to follow....

Buffalo General Medical Center:  Lobby Opening
We recently celebrated the grand opening of the $5.0M lobby renovation at Buffalo General Medical Center with our clients at BGMC and Kaleida Health. The project was the latest in a number of collaborations with this client and the first to be completed this year.

The final phase of the project will be the renovation of the adjacent auditorium into a new Conference Center.  Design Synergies will be the Project Architect for that phase, with engineering consulting by M/E Engineering & Studio T3 (Structural).
