In 2009, C.T. Male Associates was hired by the State University Construction Fund (SUCF) to perform a Campus-wide Survey and Site Utility Assessment at SUNY Delhi.  The assessment included a complete field survey, a laser-scan of the main Campus corridor, and utility assessments for water, sanitary sewer, storm sewer, steam/condensate, communications, electrical, site lighting, landscaping, and hardscaping.  The study phase was complete in 2011 and recommended improvements to the site utility systems to address age and capacity issues.

In 2011, the SUCF hired C.T. Male Associates to prepare design plans for Phase 1 of the utility improvements, which included utility, landscaping and hardscaping improvements from Gerry Hall north to McDonald Hall, along the route of the deteriorating steam/condensate lines. Phase 1 included construction of approximately 1,700 feet of direct-bury steam/condensate lines, 1,200 feet of water main, 700 feet of sanitary sewer, 50 feet of storm sewer, 1,300 feet of electrical duct bank, 20 new site lights and conduit, and 350 feet of communications conduit.  Restoration of the project area included new ADA compliant sidewalks, stairs, pavers and landscaping.  The project was broken into Phase 1A and 1B to accommodate summer construction seasons specified by SUNY Delhi.  In addition, C.T. Male Associates provided construction phase services for the project.

C.T. Male Associats is designing the Phase 2 improvements, which include utility, landscaping and hardscaping improvements for the remainder of the Campus, outside of the steam/condensate corridor.  The plans are at a preliminary design phase, and the improvements include:  11,000 feet of water main, 4,000 feet of sanitary sewer, 1,700 feet of storm sewer, 7,700 feet of electrical ductbank, upgrades to building electrical systems and new transformers at all Campus buildings, 38 new light poles and 4,000 feet of electrical conduit. Construction is anticipated in 2015.
