The Zollner Engineering Addition and Renovation project at Indiana Tech provides growth and innovation with a 30,000+ sq ft three-story expansion and full building renovation.
As the Architect of Record, Elevatus Architecture brought in various consultants to help with the planning and delivery of this new campus addition. A focus on connecting with outside environments and enhancing the quad and circulation within the campus was the main priority for this new addition. A new main entrance serves as a central hub to the facility and a collaboration zone for students. A strong visual cue from the vestibule to the new robotics program in development greets all. Glass-lined corridors help connect students and visitors with the inner-workings of various classrooms and lab spaces.
Coupled with new gathering spaces, collaboration areas and lab spaces, the latest technology and amenities for the programs and students will drive engagement. Engineering design, robotics, chemistry, electrical design, thermal sciences, and biomedical labs are several updates to debut this new project. New 24-hour computer areas and activity/study areas will help create a hub for exploration.
The west entrance was recaptured to be the main entrance for professors and support services. The Zollner Engineering Addition and Renovation will be the newest addition to the growing Campus in Fort Wayne.
The project is planned to be completed in 2023.
