Using student labor, the IDA hopes to finish the building in 2014 and complete the parking lot and landscaping in the spring of 2015.

“We know what CV-Tech students are capable of; they do very good work,” Olcott said. “They can be a great asset.”

Moriah Supervisor Tom Scozzafava knows. Moriah used CV-Tech students to build its new court facility adjacent to the town hall at Park Place.

“The (CV-Tech) students did a great job on our court house,” Scozzafava said. “They saved the town a lot of money and gained a lot of value experience. They do very good work. We’ve received a lot of favorable comments from state officials on the court house.

“I’m a big believer in the BOCES (CV-Tech) program,” he said. “I think it should be utilized more fully. It’s a great program for students and the community.”

Olcott said students can’t do all the work. They can’t pour the foundation or erect the trusses, she said. That work at the Moriah court house was done by private contractors.

“They can do almost everything else, though, with the help of a contractor,” Olcott said. “We feel this can be a very good project for the IDA, CV-Tech and the community.”
