This new Campus Center is designed to be LEED® Silver Certified.  The 50,000-square-foot, $25 million facility encompasses large dining rooms, a multipurpose room, student lounges, a book store, game rooms, convenient store, and student offices. The Center also includes storage and recycling rooms for students and staff to apply green habits.Some of the challenges that were addressed include developing a viable and successful stand-alone facility that enhances the campus’ image and portal for convenient campus entry. The design also had to anticipate a future project that will require the demolition of the rear portion of a neighboring building to create a plaza/open area.

Grand Opening in Grand Junction

Today marks the grand opening of the Campbell Student Center at Mesa State College, Grand Junction, CO.
This 100,000 sf College Center was designed in record time, having replaced the existing Center that was demolished, leaving the campus without its critical central building. In addition, the project included a 300-car garage that was constructed in 4 months.
The surprisingly mild micro-climate in Grand Junction, Colorado provided challenges and opportunities that were manifested in the transparency of the design. The campus has a tradition of outdoor activities throughout the year and the building reflects this by providing plazas and multiple terraces that relate to the various points of entry that draw students from multiple directions.
The extensive use of local stone on the Garage and the building facade enhances the desire to showcase the Mesa College for students and visitors.

SUNY Farmingdale Ground-breaking kicks off construction to be completed in 2012

Farmingdale State College began construction of a new Campus Center today which, when it opens in fall 2012, will be the first new academic or administrative building on the campus since 1983. The Campus Center will include new dining facilities for students, faculty, and staff, the campus bookstore, a multi-purpose room for lectures and special events, a student lounge, and several unique architectural features.
The Campus Center is the leading element of a $185 million construction and renovation project that will last several years and includes a planned building for the School of Business, a new Information Commons, renovations of academic buildings and research laboratories, expansion and enhancement of athletic facilities, and reconfiguration of roadways.
The ground-breaking was attended by State Senator Charles J. Fuschillo, Jr., and Assemblymen Bob Sweeney and Jim Conte, campus officials and students.
The Campus Center will be 50,000 square feet and, in keeping with the College’s legacy of environmental sustainability, will have a roof constructed of energy-efficient materials. The multi-purpose room will have a capacity of 400 for lectures and events and 220 for dinner-style seating. A special feature of the building will be an oculus—a rounded skylight—that will provide a spacious and inviting atmosphere and help ignite student-faculty interactions.
