Adams State College | Business School Addition and Renovation

  • $3.5M
  • 25,000 SF
  • 2002

The Adams State College School of Business occupies a two story cast-in-place concrete structure originally constructed in 1953, which had become obsolete.

The existing interior was gutted and reconfigured to house current program needs, which consist primarily of classroom, computer lab, and faculty office space serving the undergraduate business program.

The floor-to-floor heights of the existing structure were not sufficient to accommodate the program need for a tiered case study classroom, and consequently an addition was designed to contain that space and a 45-student lecture hall on the second floor.

The addition was constructed of cast-in-place concrete and red sandstone that recall the materials used on the existing structure.

The addition overlaps a portion of the existing structure, providing a new identity for the School that features an entry vestibule that opens into a two-story common lobby that serves as the symbolic “heart” of the facility.
