South Dakota School of Mines & Technology Rapid City, SD
The Freshman Lab at South Dakota School of Mines and Technology dons a new look while incorporating existing exposed ceiling supports and Prospector, the 226 lb. ASCE Student Chapter steel bridge, from the 2008 competition. Sponsored by Banner Associates, the update for the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department includes new paint and epoxy coating to the concrete floors. The addition of new tables and chairs were incorporated to better serve the team concept for freshman projects. Perforated window shades were installed for shading the room during presentations while still providing a connection to the outdoor daylighting.
