The Genesee Intermediate School District’s Career and Technical Education facility needed a total makeover, in both educational programming and to the facility itself. The challenge was to renovate the existing building and add to it to provide a transformational design. The solution enhances facilities, improves technologies, and offers next-generation learning spaces to support an array of modern programs. The design consolidates programs that were operating within ancillary campus structures, and provides a distinctive entrance and sense of place.
Stantec’s design creates exciting teaching and learning environments that are enhanced by the latest technology. A highly flexible space—the “Innovation Zone”­—can be easily arranged to accommodate a number of programs for individuals as well as large groups. It also links the building’s southern and northern wings. The transformed facility is now a space that sets up students for success with whichever career path they choose.
