BASOM – The Genesee County Economic Development Center board of directors today approved the selection of LeChase Construction Services of Rochester for $3.18 million of water work at the STAMP site.

The project includes the trenching and installation of approximately 50,000 square feet of pipe that will extend from the town of Oakfield to the STAMP site in the Town Alabama, just south of Orleans County.

The water work also will include connecting some households on Church Street and Maple Road in Alabama.

The project is being funded through $33 million allocated to STAMP by New York State to make the 1,250 mega-site shovel ready for advanced manufacturing operations, including 1366 Technologies.

“It’s exciting to see the first substantive infrastructure work that starts the process of making STAMP a shovel ready site,” said Steve Hyde, president and CEO of the GCEDC. “It really enhances our opportunities to market the site to those who are in the planning process of identifying shovel ready sites to build the next generation of advanced manufacturing facilities.”
