SHP Leading Design worked with the Pioneer Career & Technology Center on a complex, phased LEED-Silver registered renovation and addition project. The new facilities will offer state-of-the-art, hands-on learning environments to prepare both high school and adult students for future careers as well career advancement in several fields including health sciences.
- Extensive reprogramming of existing space will allow the district to better utilize their existing buildings to meet workforce development needs.
- In addition to academic classroom and biology and chemistry science labs, the project includes the design of lab spaces to support the unique needs of 23 different programs.
- The meat processing lab is the only lab of its kind in Ohio, housing one of the very few meat processing education programs in the United States.
- The dated exterior was re-skinned with contemporary materials, including composite metal panels, to create a technically sophisticated exterior image that carries through into the cutting-edge educational environment. New insulation creates a more energy efficient building while meeting LEED requirements.
