It includes a new three-story home for the school’s public radio station, NPR affiliate KCRW, a 30,000-square-foot classroom wing, the complete renovation of 50,000-square-foot teaching facility, and a new, seven-story parking structure.

This project provides the students with a 180-seat auditorium, a large production suite with control booths for broadcasting and film, post-production editing bays, and the latest technology computer classrooms, as well as collaboration spaces, student lounges and faculty offices.

SCEG provided mechanical, electrical and plumbing engineering for the campus including a central plant with thermal energy storage. This was the anchor for the project’s LEED Gold status.
