Klingner partnered with BLDD to provide John Wood Community College (JWCC) with a comprehensive facilities master plan to guide campus improvements.
Site visits to all five campus locations (John Wood Community College Quincy Campus; Kinscherff Adult Education and Learning Center, Quincy; Workforce Development Center, Quincy; Agricultural Education Center, Perry; Mt. Sterling Learning Center, Mt. Sterling; and Southeast Education Center, Pittsfield) were conducted to create a deferred maintenance audit of existing conditions. The team supplemented this data with feedback from faculty and students gained through a series of focus group meetings. Updates were identified and prioritized, and opinions of probable cost were generated for projects requiring immediate or short-term attention. Over 82,000 combined GSF of the five campus locations was analyzed.
The exterior site evaluation report examined the main campus entrances and the nearby intersection at 48th and Harrison Streets to improve vehicular access, establish clear wayfinding and visual cues, and clearly define entry points into the campus. A road diet on the interior access roads reducing them from four lanes to two lanes was also presented to reduce confusion and establish a bike lane that will connect to the 48th Street corridor and city-wide Greenways and Trails Master Plan.
