The Center for Career Technical Education is a new construction 166,000 sf facility designed to provide educational shop and classroom spaces for approximately 1,500 students at Capital Region BOCES, with specialty trade equipment and systems laid out for a hybrid hands-on and classroom learning environment. Capital Region BOCES serves over twenty school districts throughout the Capital Region and provides career and technical education opportunities for more than 40 programs over nine careers groups including Architecture and Construction, Government and Public Administration, Health Science, Hospitality, Information Technology, Manufacturing, Retail and Office Services, Building Trades, and Transportation, Distribution and Logistics.
Adjacent to the Center for Career Technical Education and designed concurrently as part of a single project is a 40,000 sf K-12 educational building with a focus on Special Education. This building, in addition to the CTE facility, expands the Capital Region BOCES campus across the street from their existing campus in Colonie, NY. Both buildings were designed under the purview of the New York State Education Department.
