Design Achievement – Southeastern Community College's (SCC) new Health Occupations Building uses a two-story design to create a welcoming entrance to its West Burlington campus. Using transparency and building massing, the design reflects a progressive image and a sense of belonging representative of the SCC Master Plan. These unifying characteristics also are incorporated into DLR Group's design of the new Industrial Maintenance Technology building on the Keokuk campus. Both projects intentionally emphasize collaboration and socialization as the design team strives to create campus environments where students feel important and connected to SCC.
Scope Summary – The scope of work for the Health Occupations Building encompasses 38,500 SF and includes new construction as well as adaptive reuse and renovation of an existing 1970 facility. The new Industrial Maintenance Technology Building comprises 17,700 SF of space with the central corridor's elevated roofline allowing clerestory lighting and complimenting its surroundings. DLR Group is providing integrated architecture and engineering services.
