This new $15 million academic center, completed using the construction-manager-at-risk (CMAR) delivery method, included a 17,000 sq. ft. renovation and 35,000 sq. ft. addition to the Whitney building. Providing technology-rich science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) classrooms and labs, faculty/student interaction spaces, a new student service welcome center, faculty offices, and bookstore, the space adds flexibility for multi-function use. As the new front door for the college, the building eases wayfinding for new and returning students.
