Project Size

28,000 Square Feet

This 28,000 Square Feet expansion of the Upper Bucks Campus was built to handle a rapidly increasing enrollment. The LEED Silver design was geared on taking advantage of natural light throughout the building.

The mechanical systems were designed to utilize 52 geo-thermal wells for heating and cooling, as well as solar heat collectors for domestic hot water heating. Also included is a "Green Roof" Plaza that connects the existing building to the new.

The design utilized the rolling terrain of the area to enhance the building features and add an Amphitheater in the lower plaza. The new building contains executive offices, additional technology classrooms, library, conference rooms, tutoring spaces, computer rooms and a student lounge.

This new expansion provides students a high tech environment for gaining fully accredited Associates Degrees.
