Consolidating all the student service office and support spaces under one roof was critical for success at Iowa Central Community College. Student retention and attraction depended on a facility that delivered an iconic and welcoming design for serving the future workforce of Iowa, the region, and the nation.
HAILA was challenged with providing an office space to allow students and faculty from Iowa Central to work collaboratively and connect students with the services and resources that they need to succeed.
Iowa Central wanted a “one stop shop” for all things oriented toward student services. The office spaces that serve student functions were spread-out all-over campus and not easily accessible to students and faculty. Iowa Central’s new student service office building provides an efficient and functional space that focuses on circulation and flow to accommodate one of the most highly used and trafficked buildings on campus.
