The Chesapeake Campus is the college’s “green” campus, sitting on 69 acres of land. The landscape includes protected wetlands and a tributary of the southern branch of the Elizabeth River. Green space from all buildings, especially the Chesapeake Student Center with glass walls that provide views of the open spaces. Students in the sciences enjoy the living laboratories with wildlife and birds, as the campus is a Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary.
This project consisted of a new three-story, 62,296 square foot structure that accommodates academic and administrative functions.
The Academic Building provided much needed additional academic space to accommodate general education programming in humanities, social sciences, labs, performing arts spaces, general classrooms, tiered classrooms, computer labs, general assembly area, computer labs, a Dean’s Suite, multi-purpose assembly space and faculty offices. Also included is a 3,400 square foot black box theatre with flexible seating to accommodate 114-211 seats.
Exterior materials include aluminum composite panels, brick veneer masonry, pre-cast concrete, with aluminum windows, curtain wall system and glass.
