I have a builidng with floor area of 15255 square feet. I need to excavate 1 foot down = 45765 cubic feet or volume.
How many cubic yards is this?

15255 square foot * 1 foot = 15255 cubic foot
Not sure where you got 45765 cubic feet, but it is not the correct result.
There are 27 cubic feet in a cubic yard, so just divide by 27.
15255 cubic feet / 27 = 565 cubic yards

I meant 3 feet or 1 yard deep, however the formula is the same.
Thanks for your help.

Yes, the formula would be the same.
15255 square feet * 3 feet = 45765 cubic feet
45765 cubic feet / 27 = 1695 cubic yards
