This new 21,000 square feet facility expanded program offerings for the Eastern Shore Community College in such areas as culinary arts, information technology, customer service and self-enrichment programming. The building was completed in 2010 and contains classrooms, office space, computer labs, an applied health lab, industrial training lab, distance learning lab, conference room, lecture hall and warming kitchen. The project also included a divided entrance roadway from Route 13, which was designed to be a curving roadway, landscaped to achieve a “parkway-like” appearance. MSA coordinated closely with VDOT for the roadway portion of the project, which was completed in August 2011.
In 2005, MSA was selected to support a second project architect for the design phase of the Work Force Training Center. In this phase, MSA’s scope of work included a topographic/boundary survey of the 114+ acre campus. We conducted legal research, field surveying to locate property lines and establish topographic elevations, and finalized the survey. We coordinated the services of an aerial survey subcontractor for assistance with mapping. Additional services include a wetland assessment, sewage system design and health department permitting, and civil engineering construction plans for the building and access roadway. A traffic impact assessment coordinated by MSA supported the design of roadway improvements. All services complied with the County of Accomack, Virginia Department of Transportation, Virginia Bureau of Capital Outlay Management (BCOM), and State Health Department Regulations.
