Congratulations to the scholarship winners, and to all students for their wonderful efforts.

The Curtiss Hotel will be the place to stay in Buffalo for the foreseeable future when it opens it's doors this year. The IES Buffalo Section had a sneak peek inside the hotel on April 20. The tour took started in the main lobby, through the outdoor hot springs, the rooftop lounge, the premier rooms on the 6th floor, the kitchen, and basement. Many of the attendees were amazed at the quality of the materials, the exotic designs, and enjoyed seeing parts of a building they normally will never see, and spaces that were not complete. Looking forward to seeing the project complete. Check out the photo gallery.
