- Improve indoor quality of spaces.
- Allow for future growth.
Located in the south side portion of MJC's East Campus. The two-story building contains classrooms, class labs, and offices for a total of 74,286 sf. The building was constructed at this location in 1971 and there have been no additions to the building. Three major concerns of Founders Hall are, ventilation, lighting and outdated classrooms.
The most used lecture facility on the East Campus greatly needs modernization in order to provide an appropriate instructional environment for a diverse community of learners. Major renovation to the Founders Hall floor plan is needed to make better use of existing space. A reconfiguration of space will also allow areas to be designated to facilitate student study and interaction. The increased space of these learning assistance facilities will have tremendous potential to influence student learning. Areas will also need to be designated for new faculty and staff offices, as well as, instructional storage.
The space needed to accommodate the above remodeling and reorganization of space will be achieved by making better use of existing space in Founders Hall, utilizing new lecture facilities in the High Tech Center.
