North Canton, Ohio
Stark State College
SoL Harris/Day Architects worked with the staff at Stark State College to develop a space program for the Business and Entrepreneurial Center. The three story business center addition was designed to provide a new “presence” for the Stark State community and to simplify campus circulation paths for students.
Some of the major program spaces that make up the 40,000 sf addition include: lecture hall, atrium, marketing and financial labs, captioning and computer labs, classrooms, testing and resource centers, and business faculty offices. Existing business administration offices were reorganized as well.
With sustainability in mind, this space achieved LEED Silver certification which included a 30% energy reduction, 40% water reduction, and included a solar domestic hot water system that were incorporated into the overall budget of $8,300,000.
