I would say normally that goes public. Because everything needs to go public with a state school. Even the people who did the design . There needs to be bids. 

You are not exactly correct with what you just stated.  You can sole source with a firm that you have done work with and the work is in a similar vein, without going out to bid.  I would not be surprised if HEERY had something for us.  I saw the Casey Stadium designs WAY before they went public.  WAY BEFORE...even before people knew a company designed them.  In fact, I saw two different designs (I think i have the original somewhere...but that ultimately made it to public).

From at least FIVE people I trust, I've been told there is a prelim conceptual design.

Most of the accolades Benson gives himself are not really even "his". Most were done by or ushered by other people in the University for athletics. I think most people know that he is not a coach

I was a McElroy guy.  Fundraising was by far his biggest negative.  You have to ask people to give you money, that is sadly a big part of the job.  Dr. McElroy presided over the growth of the most suc

What I can say is I have done work for the state. Everything I have done in an OFFICAL capacity has been public . If someone asks me to do something unofficially then of course it's not public information.  I have tried to buy state land, build on state land, worked on designs on state land, and everything official was public.  Everytime we got paid to do something was public information.  

 

Of course I know nothing about stadium design . What I can tell u with 100 percent certainty is that the newer dorms at albany was 100 percent public , from the design, to the construction, to the landscaping.

I"d be inclined to believe you!  Is there a reason things have stalled?  Or, I suppose, progress isn't well known?

From what I have been told, politics and lack of foresight by our leadership.

I'm telling you, as an attorney who works SOLELY on public projects, including MANY in New York state (including with Albany)...what I stated is a fact about sole sourcing.

I saw photos of a preliminary design of a renovation if SEFCU Arena 2.5 years ago. They exist. I can't speak about any details, nor do I remember them anyway. I am sure they have been changed multiple times since then, but I do remember being surprised how many of the things incorporated were suggestions from one of the old butts in seats threads.

There were others too. Might have been called @sses in the seats or something like that. The thread I was thinking of was the older one.

Based on what you saw...did you at any point get a chubby?
