Interesting Fact: Adding a dramatic addition with large glass facades without increasing capacities to the existing central plant was an engineering challenge the team faced.

The dramatic $2.5M renovation, addition, and facade enhancement to West Hall, one of the original buildings on Edison State’s campus, was designed to impress and provide that “wow” factor for first-time visitors and future students. Its sleek design modernizes the entire campus and offers a new and improved look to the otherwise dated building.

"The SHP team listened to the visionary statements of all areas of the college. They asked guiding and insightful questions, they gave time to the initial design phase of the project that permitted innovation and creativity."
