Student Experience Center/Space Alocation and Policy Committee (SEC/SAPC) assembly on May third dealt with issues relative to space allocation and constituent feedback.
At this point in project development assessments are being made to the most recent project sheet. Serious consideration is currently placed on the need for office space and floor plan alteration; including discussion on decreasing the size of the central stairway opening. Previously employed as a means of creating the “atrium effect,” the original idea of the open stairway was to bring natural light to all floors. However, as of recent, the flight will no longer be going through the fourth floor, offering the opportunity for size adjustment. Decorative though it is, the amount of space monopolized by such an opening warrants a great deal of money in the name of connectivity and aesthetics.
Additionally, Craft Center spokespersons reported the need for solidification of details due to the complexity of their part of the project. With additional revisions demanding attention these representatives requested, and were granted, personal time with architects in an effort to reduce haste caused miscommunications. Meetings with Opsis will commence on Wednesday, May ninth.
