Columbus, Ohio, USA
Designed as part of the Columbus State Community College, the Center for Workforce Development currently serves as the largest academic building on campus at over 13,000 sqm, providing classrooms, laboratories, workshops, and office support spaces for the college’s Community Education and Workforce Development Division. Utilizing the latest technology, the center affords audio-visual equipment and wireless internet in every classroom, while also providing a state-of-the-art business conference center on the top floor. Within the visually highlighted and identifiable conference center, the space features a 400 person capacity ballroom, 10 breakout rooms connected by a gallery, board rooms, and serving kitchen for catered events. Some of the AE7 partners were involved in design and management of the project while working at Burt Hill’s USA offices.
