This Environmental Education and Research Center project, a 2,300 SF tenant improvement in the historic Seminary Gymnasium Annex at St. Edward State Park, is considered substantially complete. The Annex is a one-story addition that recently served as Locker Rooms and Meeting Rooms.
The Annex gutted of interior walls and finishes, plumbing fixtures, electrical and mechanical systems, and re-constructed as an Environmental Education and Research Center. A new Park Office space will be built adjacent to the center. New windows, doors, a garage door, and a skylight were added at exterior walls and roof to allow daylight into the facility. The center contains an approximately 800 SF classroom serving students and adults of all ages, from Pre-K to college to adult learners. In addition, the learning center will use the 326 acres of Saint Edward State Park as a living laboratory and outdoor classroom.
This Architectural Consultant has also volunteered design skills to create an adjacent outdoor learning area that will be accessed from the new garage door.
