Rollins Hall Advising and Transfer Center, Bucks County Community College

Schradergroup provided design services for the renovation and conversion of approximately 4,300 SF of undefined space lacking in program within Rollins Hall into an Advising and Transfer Center. The space primarily is dedicated to student counseling and includes a suite consisting of small, flexible office spaces for advising functions. The design features moveable acoustical partitions as well as sliding and folding glass partitions to allow for flexibility and adaptability. Additionally, moveable furniture fosters side-by-side collaboration by student and counselor. Other spaces included as part of the program include Director and Assistant Director offices, a Conference Room, and a larger Computer Room or training center for approximately 20 students. The space also integrates an existing fireside lounge feature along with small tables and comfortable seating scattered throughout to provide multi-function breakout spaces. The Center design serves an important role in promoting a sense of identity for the College and is responsible for creating a welcoming first impression for visiting potential students. Mechanical, electrical, technology, and security system upgrades are also included as part of the project scope.
