William Seneca Administration Building
This $10.5 million administration building serves as one of two headquarters for the Seneca Nation of Indians' government officials including the President, Treasurer, Clerk, and Council on the Cattaraugus Territory. The project included the renovation of the existing 1-story administration building, and vertical and horizontal expansion. The project doubled the size of the building by adding new space to the first story and a complete second story. The 45,000 SF building includes office spaces, Council Chambers, meeting rooms for employees and Seneca Nation departments, and will also be a place of gathering for Seneca members. Work included partial demolition of the existing building, site work, concrete work, glasswork, metal panels, natural stonework, ceramic tile, food service equipment, plumbing, fire protection, electrical, mechanical, gypsum board, painting, wall covering, and roofing. The construction of the new glass and metal façade symbolizes the iconic Tree of Peace, which brought the original five Iroquois Nations together in peace, unity and friendship. The building is dedicated to the late William Seneca who was a well-respected Seneca President. This project was completed in August 2010 and received Buffalo Business First's Brick by Brick Award for Best New Office/Development in 2011.
