Consolidating two campuses into one for Delaware Area Career Center, this project entailed the renovation of 100,000sf and a major addition of 120,000sf to deliver an innovative, future-focused educational facility. The design addresses the rapidly changing needs of education through student-centric, individualized learning environments that are highly digital and spaces that support active learning and collaboration.

- A variety of learning environments support various group sizes and learning modalities and over 20 career technical programs, including Construction, Power Sports & Diesel and Welding. Instructors are not assigned to a particular space but to a group of students.
- The interior creates an open and engaging environment that fosters collaborative and individualized learning.
- The exterior design delivers a vibrant new image that engages with the community and builds excitement about technical education.
- An informal learning commons supports peer-to-peer interaction. The use of glass and large operable doors allows spaces to open up to each other and adapt based on student and staff needs.
