Eastern Florida State College
The new EFSC Student Union is part of a forward-thinking plan to accommodate for the college’s rapid expansion of academic and degree programs. It’s existence symbolizes the college’s welcoming attitude and student first approach to meet and exceed the needs of their students and community.
This vibrant center for student life will serve as the “front door” to the extensive campus and include space for a variety of student services, clubs, activities and government. The two-story structure houses a food court, coffee bar, spirit store, lounge and recreation spaces, student study areas, meeting spaces, student life and government offices, general office space and a roof-top terrace.
Boys Electrical Contractors was charged with removal of abandoned in place utilities, the relocation of existing utilities and the design and construction of new utility infrastructure to service this facility. The building will be serviced by the existing central utility plant with new chilled and hot water lines being connected to the existing units which have been designed for the new capacity demand for this facility.
An outdoor plaza offers students an opportunity to socialize, relax or study in the Florida sunshine by day or in well-lit security by night. In addition, a new drive circle with parallel parking and a service access drive provide easier access to multiple areas.
The Student Union is a vibrant center of student life, giving students “a place to gather, relax, study, and participate in Eastern Florida’s rich collegiate experience. In fact, many of our students provided their input for the design. You can see many of their ideas in this very special building that contains sleek glass walls, inviting open spaces inside and out, and all the areas for our students to plug into their digital lifestyle.”
