Northwest Florida State College Student Services Building & Building K Renovation

This new 3-story Student Services Building has an enclosed area of approximately 77,000 GSF. The building is composite structural steel and concrete structure with exterior brick masonry and curtain wall system. The roof is a single-ply membrane roofing system. The new student services building houses a new 6,300s SF full service kitchen along with a 6,500 SF cafeteria and various banquet rooms and meeting rooms on the ground floor. The second floor is home to the enrollment department and consists mainly of small offices with a couple of larger classroom type testing areas. The third floor includes several meeting and banquet spaces.

The second phase of the project was a renovation to the existing Student Services Building (Building K). The building is approximately 33,000 GSF and consists of a coffee shop, game room, offices, the student bookstore, and storage space. The renovation included the complete gutting and replacement of the mechanical, and electrical systems throughout the building as well as selective demolition of interior and perimeter walls, finishes, doors and windows. This entire building received new finishes, electrical, mechanical and plumbing systems throughout. Along with the selective demolition of the building interiors, the existing center structure of the building were completely removed to be replaced with a multi-level roof system supported by new structural steel support members; thereby modernizing the appearance and integrating the more modern theme of the campus into this building.safety, award
