The building was designed to take advantage of its prominent site overlooking a busy interstate highway intersection. Our firm, in partnership with Burt Hill Kosar Rittelmann Associates, designed and constructed the new, high-tech academic center. The new center includes a state-of-the-art information technology facility, auditoriums, a premier culinary arts college, a student life center, a communication center, a wellness center, and support functions. The design created a modern, efficient parking structure for 747 cars that supports existing and new facilities on campus.

The location of the building on a prominent site offers an opportunity to create an image and identity for the college. In design, the new center represents Cincinnati State’s mission to encourage “out-of-the-box” thinking – a quality required of institutions today in competing in the aggressive global marketplace. The facility supports and integrates well with various industries in the Midwest. It has become a recruiting tool in attracting students of all ages and backgrounds.
