Human Resources Nursing Building Renovation

Role: Demolition, Framing, Drywall, Rough Carpentry and Painting
Project Type: Educational/Institutional
Location: Columbia, MD

Howard Community College in Columbia, Maryland, is a public institution of Howard County with the mission to help anyone with an educational goal. The college has decided to renovate the Human Resources department which involves an occupied, phased interior renovation of 2,016 square feet of existing space located in the first level of the Nursing Building. The design for the renovation has been completed by the architecture firm, Symmetry First Architects, LLC. The project shall include a complete turnkey facility.

The college will need to renovate the vacated areas of the campus to accommodate administrative areas, offices for staff and faculty, general use class labs, and meeting space. The nursing building is physically connected to the McCuan Hall, so the extension of administration in to the vacated spaces on the second floor is programmatically effective. In addition, the insertion of class labs and meeting space on the first floor will allow for natural connectivity of the two buildings. Because of its location, it is the perfect opportunity to address the unmet needs in administration including spaces for human resources, planning, research and organizational development, center for service learning, honors center, public relations, and a faculty development center. With the nursing building attached to the administration building, the college can consolidate areas and allow for the overflow of offices into the nursing building. Renovations to the nursing building will be required to ensure that the college continues to provide quality instruction and outstanding services to its community.
