Kaplan Hall Branch Campus
The three-story Science & Technology building atop a 3-level subterranean parking garage which houses an array of classrooms and science laboratories, as well as a two-story library, a one-stop center for all student services, a cybercafé where students can mingle, and office space for faculty members and administrators.
Highly efficient HVAC systems, LED lighting, a roof-mounted solar PV array, along with a 15,000-gallon cistern that is used to capture the roof rainwater and irrigate the vegetative rooftop of the underground parking garage were all features included in the project.
Holt understands that higher education projects require a specialized level of knowledge and often include the integration of complex renovation within occupied environments. Holt works collaboratively with the owner and architect in developing detailed plans that allow faculty and the student body to learn, grown and go home safely every day.
