Lansing Community College – Gannon Building Conference Center

Lansing, Michigan

DLZ provided professional architecture and engineering services to renovate existing adjunct faculty offices located at the existing Gannon Building First Level area adjacent to the Student Commons and Food Service to accommodate new Conference Center functions. These renovations encompass approximately 7,000 square feet and include creating a large conference room to seat approximately 150-200 occupants, adjacent small breakout meeting rooms, lobby and pre-function spaces, storage rooms, food service staging area, existing kitchen improvements and equipment upgrades.

The design intent was to create a unique Conference Center that could be used by LCC and the community. The Conference Center incorporates several visual guides to create a simplistic flow through spaces. This was accomplished and encouraged by the shapes of the spaces and views from space to space, locations of doors and openings, use of lighting and technology, progression of varying ceiling heights, overall ceiling and flooring design patterns, and custom design casework.

The project was implemented utilizing an Integrated Project Delivery method in partnership with Granger Construction as part of the 2015 Capital Outlay Build Forward Project Improvements.
