Project Details

Schemmer was initially retained to assess the existing facilities in Lincoln and develop the master plan for the expanding campus. The master plan involved the demolition of the four-story dorm building and the wood-framed addition to the education building. New construction included a 20,000 SF, two-story education addition and a complete renovation of the existing 20,000 SF education building – in multiple phases. The site work involved doubling the parking facilities, additional exterior plazas and landscaping, and possible inclusion of a parking garage. Schemmer was then retained to design the expansion/renovation project. A dynamic two-story glass atrium links the existing and new structure, including a connector bridge with gathering space spanning the atrium at the second level.
