Frey Electric Construction Company is pleased to be a part of Business First’s Core Strength as the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus Section Sponsor.
For nearly two decades, there have been many positive changes on the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus. While even more projects are being planned, active construction is visible throughout the Campus. It is truly an exciting time to be a Buffalonian and Western New Yorker in one of the country’s busiest construction regions – and even more exciting to be a part of many of these great projects.
Back in the early 2000’s, the vision of a downtown campus to inspire collaboration, research, medicine and education seemed like a bold notion. Well, we’ve seen that vision come into fruition. As Buffalo and Western New York turns the corner, the Medical Campus has been a key component, keeping our talented young professionals, while recruiting and bringing in outsiders to our community with high paying jobs.
As we drive down Main, High or North Streets and see the cranes and construction workers, we obviously see the progress. But another way to put this progress into perspective is in jobs. With the completion and relocation of University at Buffalo Medical School and Roswell Park initiatives, the Medical Campus is projected to employee over 17,000 people – close to what Bethlehem Steel employed back in the regions industrial heyday.
Frey Electric is proud of the part we’ve played to help build the Medical Campus and look forward to future developments. We are currently wrapping up the state-of-the-art UB School of Medicine bringing 2,000 faculty, staff and students’ downtown on a daily basis and the new parking garage at Ellicott and Goodrich which will have 1,900 new parking spaces. We’ve successfully completed some of the most technologically complex projects including; the new Roswell Park Clinical Sciences Center Expansion, Conventus Medical Office Building and The Phoenix Brewery Apartments, among others. Each of these projects are a step towards achieving the Medical Campus vision.
So with all of the recent successes happening throughout Western New York, Frey Electric is excited to employ local talent and contribute to Buffalo’s core strength, the people of this community. For over 70 years, both private and public sector clients throughout the area have worked with Frey Electric for our full spectrum of services in the electrical and communication fields. As one of the largest specialty contractors in the area, we provide solutions from design and installation to lifetime maintenance. Our three specific divisions – Industry, Commercial and Residential Complexes – offer diversification that our customers need, all backed up with a dedicated service department, ensuring the region is always up and running.
So let’s power forward Buffalo, the future looks bright.
