National architecture, engineering and planning firm Bergmann has been awarded a three-year contract to provide architectural services to the New York State Office of General Services (OGS) Design & Construction Group. The maximum value of this contract is $3 million for projects across New York state.
Bergmann has been providing architectural services to OGS for more than 20 years. In the past, Bergmann completed multiple projects as part of an engineering and architecture statewide contract. For example, Bergmann provided design services for the roof replacement and exterior stair rehabilitation at the historic Empire State Plaza.
One of the more significant recent Bergmann/OGS projects was the OGS Capital Milestones Child Care Center, where Bergmann provided architectural and structural engineering services, in partnership with Spring Line Design, for renovations to the 28,000 sq. ft. building. This project included a number of featured spaces such as classrooms for infants through pre-K, a multipurpose room and staff support spaces.
“We have a longstanding working relationship with the OGS Design & Construction team and are excited to continue our project support for the Project Management group in Albany,” said Bergmann Principal-in-Charge Gary Flisnik, Assoc. AIA, PMP. “We look forward to this opportunity to serve New York state over the next three years and provide the service, value and innovative designs that our clients have come to expect from working with Bergmann.”
Bergmann will support the OGS projects from five offices located in cities across New York—Albany, Buffalo, Horseheads, Rochester and Syracuse. A team of subconsultants will assist with specialty aspects of projects when needed. Projects within this contract will focus primarily on building enclosure and interior renovation work.
For nearly four decades, Bergmann architects, engineers and planners have been delivering results to clients across the United States and Canada. This team of more than 400 professional and technical staff spans the Northeast, Midwest and Atlantic regions. Bergmann develops connections with partners and communities to create dynamic, creative solutions that will stand the test of time, while promoting environmental and functional sustainability. Projects in the Bergmann portfolio range from signature buildings and commercial developments to critical transportation infrastructure and community planning.
