SCC, Faribault Renovation & Addition
Renovation and Addition | 2014

This renovation and addition affected nearly every space on South Central College’s campus, including classrooms; labs; student study, activity, and assembly spaces; administrative offices; a bookstore; and a library. With the goal of creating high quality space for human activity, this project used good basic design to provide for future flexibility and selected materials and systems that are practical, high-quality, low maintenance, and durable. Using the B3 Guidelines also ensured that the design incorporated indoor environmental quality elements that might otherwise have been overlooked or avoided.

Through their post-occupancy survey, students reported that both the overall facility and their primary classroom enhance their learning experience and health. On average, the students were satisfied with nearly all of the surveyed aspects of their classroom environment, with the highest scores allocated to cleaning and maintenance, technology conditions, and electric lighting. 

This project was a finalist for the 2016 Best of B3 Indoor Environmental Quality - Classrooms Award.
