A career center serving the needs of two growing Spartanburg, SC school districts required a substantial programming effort to maximize existing space and training programs, minimize costs, and provide an attractive addition to the existing building and site. The addition provides a secure entry, a 300-seat multi-purpose room, and a courtyard located adjacent to the culinary arts area. The complete instructional kitchen includes a separate classroom, allowing hands-on instruction and classroom lectures to be held concurrently. Other programmatic goals included relocating carpentry, graphic arts, and auto mechanic instructional areas to provide more effective use of space, an additional four bays for the auto mechanics teaching lab, increased bathrooms, new technology, and code compliancy remedy critical deficiencies.
