The ADDITIONAL INFORMATIONCAPACITY357COST PER SQ FT$132.56FEATURED IN2012 Architectural Portfolio envisions a campus where students and community get together to learn in a more collaborative setting, creating adaptable and flexible spaces, and supporting more meaningful relationships among faculty and students. Two-story lounge spaces with fireplaces, wireless study rooms, centralized kitchenettes and green roof patios enhance the college experience and create a greater sense of belonging.

A high-performance cost-effective envelope utilizing LEED guidelines minimized energy consumption, reduced mechanical equipment size, and lowered life-cycle maintenance and operational costs.
