enhancing the main central entrance lobby as a focal point. Student services and
support are located north of the main lobby directly adjacent to the campus and executive

designed to display a large mural created by the campus artist.

slab on grade, metal bar joist and deck sloped to perimeter gutters and downspouts.
Interior construction is metal stud and gypsum board. HVAC utilizes rooftop package

clean lines with no visible equipment exposure.
