Thomas R. Fulghum Conference Center
Chesterfield County engaged BCWH to design a multi-functional, one of a kind facility that would combine career and technical education, school administration and an event center, all within the walls of an abandoned high school building. The team programmed over 198,000 square feet of space to provide specialty functions while taking advantage of efficiencies and adjacencies of the different user groups. Specialty career and technical education spaces will accommodate lab, lecture and research areas for bio-technology, homeland security, ecology, PT/OT, and mechatronics to name a few. Breakout space and collaboration hubs are ample throughout the building, encouraging 21st century learning among real world work environments. The Career and Technical Center at Hull design provides the County an opportunity to re-use existing space while building new programs for students and administrators in an innovative atmosphere.
