UB: Ciminelli charges won't affect Jacobs School medical campus project

The criminal charges unsealed Thursday against top executives of construction company LPCiminelli are not expected to have any effect on the firm’s ongoing work at the University at Buffalo’s Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, a UB spokesman said.

The Buffalo-based company is the general contractor for the $375 million medical school project on the edge of the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus on Main Street. Construction on the eight-story, 540,000-square-foot complex began with a groundbreaking in October 2013, and is expected to be completed this fall. It is not part of the Buffalo Billion, however, and the bulk of the work is already done.

“Construction of the medical school is entering its final phases,” said UB spokesman John DellaContrada. “The university has no reason to believe at this time that the project’s timetable will be impacted by today’s news.”
