The design creates a fitting identity for the UA and pronounces the new Professional Development Center as a standalone module within the Eller College.
McClelland Hall is home to the Eller College of Management, one of the University’s most prominent schools. The University required a three-level addition to provide career services to students, as well as space for staff and student activities. Key design concerns included respect for the original building architecture and character of the University campus, as well as seamless integration of the new space into the old. The location offered an additional challenge since it involved a two-story infill project in an existing opening in the building’s courtyard.
GLHN provided access to central gathering spaces for students with flexibility that allows for a large number of people and activities at the same time. We incorporated natural light throughout the facility for an open connection to the exterior and reduction in energy needs. Our engineers assessed the building’s existing mechanical and electrical systems for added capacity.
