Kent State University College of Architecture and Environmental Design

Gilbane is honored to build the Kent State University College of Architecture and Environmental Design for Future Industry Leaders

Gilbane is providing construction management at risk services for this signature building that is part of the university’s campus transformation project called “Foundations of Excellence: Building the Future.” The building will be located on the south side of the KSU Esplanade near downtown Kent, Ohio.

The CAED project will include 110,000 square feet of classrooms, studio space, shop and research facilities, as well as administrative offices. The building envelope will include an expansive glass and glazing system and the open design entices those walking by to view the building and students working inside at all hours.

The building features a sustainable and open loft design with a focus on energy preservation and will be certified LEED Gold. Sustainable elements will include extensive exterior green spaces and green roof areas. Architects on the project were Weiss/Manfredi and Richard L. Bowen + Associates.
