BNIM is currently completing construction documents for the South Annex Addition to the Seamans Center for the Engineering Arts and Sciences. The goals for this project include creating a series of spaces that not only provide for functional use, but to help build a larger community within the entire engineering facility and foster innovation teaching, learning, and discovery. The project includes new formal and informal research spaces, varied sizes of active learning classrooms, student development and tutoring spaces, and the creation of a new common lobby centered around a technology-rich student project design studio that brings the entire engineering community together. Renovation work in the existing building includes creating an Engineering Learning Commons adjacent to the engineering library space. The Commons will include flexible study and presentation spaces for faculty and students use.
