A $4.2 million multi-functional complex that incorporates four levels of parking, two student dormitory levels, mechanical rooms, storage space and offices, and a penthouse residence for the College President.  The design team strategically located, shaped, and constructed the structure around a landmark oak tree in the middle of the campus.  A fast track design and construction schedule enabled the parking levels and upper level shell to be constructed during a three month summer recess with minor disruption to the college.

The completed structure, which incorporates a precast concrete framing system for the parking and dormitory levels and a steel frame for the penthouse level, is an aesthetically pleasing focal point on campus and for the surrounding area.
