As part of an extensive, multi-phased renovation of their original 1969 main campus building, Brazosport College hired Kirksey to design a new 21,000-sf infill addition to house their Student Life Center (SLC) and renovate their existing library to accommodate new technology and functional demands. Because all renovations and infill projects/additions are occurring simultaneously, the phasing schedule was very complex. The Student Life Center houses all the campus organization offices, such as intramural sports, Student Government, and various clubs. Additionally, there are seminar/study rooms, an internet café, and ample study nooks and gathering spaces throughout.
The 35,000-sf Library renovation incorporates two floors of the main building and 7,000 sf of infill for additional stacks. The renovated library also accommodates the relocated Learning Assistance Center, which provides student services such as testing, computer labs, and study rooms, and the relocated Transitional Education Center, which provides teaching and study rooms, a writing lab and offices for staff.
