East-West University Administrative Offices

Administrative Offices for East-West University were consolidated from the Classroom building and relocated to newly purchased adjacent building, permitting the expansion of much needed classrooms. Wright Heerema Architects began the design process by first programming the facility, starting with the establishment of workstation types that would become the building blocks for administration and faculty offices, and would carry to the classroom building.
