55,130 sq. ft., 3-Stories
Towson University North East Academic Building is a new 55,000 sq. ft., three-story academic building. Located on the grounds of Harford Community College, the new building offers state-of-the-art classrooms, labs and educational resources.
The project site sits at a sizeable 112+ acres and underwent a massive transformation from a corn field with some select wooded areas into the distinctly campus environment that it provides today. Portions of the site were excavated over sixteen feet while other areas were filled over eighteen feet as the grades and elevations of the landscape were reinvented.
Additionally, this LEED Silver site is largely self-sufficient: water is sourced from a well and is treated and stored in below ground tanks. The site has its own waste water treatment plant and storm water is collected in a number of ponds, bio-retention facilities, and forebay facilities. Only power, natural gas, and tele-data services were brought to the project site.
The building contains various lab, office, and classroom space. The lower level of the new building consists of wet labs, a nursing lab, classrooms, a servery with service kitchen, a café space, and a large auditorium.
The second floor includes more classroom space, a bookstore, library, computer labs, office space. Also on the second floor, a vast common and alternate learning space opens to both the floor above and floor below in the impressive center wedge, with glass and impressive views throughout. The third floor again features classrooms and office space, along with a collaborative learning space, a bridge, and a roof terrace which again take advantage of the views, especially to the west.
This project was a collaboration within the local community as well as between the adjacent Harford Community College and Towson University.
