On Sept. 24, DMR Architects, a top New Jersey architect dedicated to progressive, innovative and sustainable architecture, planning and urban design celebrated the groundbreaking of West Hall at Middlesex County College, a new building which will consolidate student services in a one-stop center.
DMR first completed programming, then completed the design of the 33,000 square foot facility, scheduled to open in the spring of 2016. The building will seek LEED Gold certification and is expected to cost $12 million.
West Hall has been the catalyst to launch a new business model at the College. This model reorganizes institutional processes to allow cross-trained staff to provide basic services at one point of interaction, using a three tier service system. This process streamlines services, saves time and reduces operating costs.
"Our goal is to bring the services of several departments under one roof to meet the needs of students and their family members for admission, financial aid, advising, registration, orientation, scholarships and student accounts," College President Joann La Perla-Morales said at the groundbreaking. "We are excited about this addition to our beautiful campus," she added.
