The Northeastern Junior College — ES French Hall renovation and expansion project was on the active campus in Sterling, CO. The phased, systematic approach to the renovation and expansion transformed the nearly 67,000 gross square foot facility that included the 500 seat Corsburg Theater, stage, practice facilities, classrooms, class laboratories, and offices. The renovation also included enclosing the open courtyard located in the western half of the building and transforming it into a variety of student study and community gathering areas. The project goals included providing enhanced student services, modernizing the facility appearance, traffic flow, usefulness, access as well as addressing future growth and sustainability of the facility.
