This $10 million administration building serves as one of two headquarters for the Seneca Nation’s  government officials including the president, treasurer, clerk, and council on the Cattaraugus Territory. The project doubled the size of the building to 45,000 sq. ft. by adding new space to the first level and a complete second story. Work included partial demolition of the existing building, site work, concrete, glasswork, and installation of 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. This project was completed in August 2010 and received Business First of Buffalo’s Brick by Brick Award for Best New Office/Development in 2011.
