The new three-story academic building, which was constructed in an “L” shape, consists of classrooms, a dining room and other common areas on the first floor. The upper two levels include classrooms, science laboratories, a library, an art room, storage rooms and other support spaces. The exterior design is consistent with the architectural style of the existing “Jeffersonian” architecture on campus.
The project was designed and built to achieve a LEED Gold certification. LEED items included 40% water reduction, using low-emitting materials and reusing existing materials.
