ROCHESTER, NY (November 17, 2014) – Miller Brick Company has always been a staple in the Rochester area – since 1949, the Ridgeway Avenue small business has supplied brick and stone for residential and commercial projects like.
But recently, Miller Brick embarked on its most prestigious project yet – adding to the Rochester, NY skyline and bolstering the local economy in the process.
Miller Brick secured the exclusive contract to build the new Golisano Children’s Hospital at The University of Rochester – supplying over 400,000 Glen-Gery bricks to construct the project. The hospital, located on Crittenden Boulevard and attached to the Medical Center and Strong Memorial Hospital, will open in the summer of 2015. With eight floors, and 245,000 square feet of space with a dedicated Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, the $145-million project is one that Miller Brick is proud to be a part of.
“The fact that this hospital, which is world-renowned, hired Miller Brick as their contractor really says a lot about Rochester,” explains Mike Ksczanowicz, President for Miller Brick. “Together we are using local resources – local laborers and suppliers – and in turn we are really revitalizing the city and the skyline.”
The construction of the new Golisano Children’s Hospital comes on the tail of several other multi-million dollar local contracts that Miller Brick has been awarded. Glen-Gery brick was also used to build the highly anticipated College Town at the University of Rochester, which includes Barnes & Noble, , and dozens of shops and restaurants; along with Arriscraft Renaissance Masonry Units to construct the new Hilton Garden Inn.
Over at Nazareth College, Miller Brick supplied over 100,000 McAvoy bricks for the new Carroll Hall, which were custom colored specifically for the college. This same brick was used just two years ago to construct Nazareth’s Math & Science Building.
“We are extremely proud of all the work we are doing in the area,” adds Ksczanowicz. “Everybody knows you can come to Miller Brick to get a patio, or to get a fireplace. But these large commercial applications are allowing us to leave our mark on the city we’ve called home for over 60 years.”
