C2 provided architectural design services for the renovations to SUNY Schenectady's Welcome Center located in Elston Hall.
Design goals centered around enhancing the Student Services Center. Our team developed a fresh and welcoming design that met the college's vision to create greater access, and a one-stop student services approach that allows students to move easily between testing, advising, counseling, registration, financial aid, and admissions.
The design includes a new reception desk area and an enclosed student services administration area with private offices for staff. Two flex meeting spaces were created for staff meetings and/or private consultations with students. In addition to a large waiting area, the reception space includes self-help kiosks to process simple transactions, as well as a dedicated service area.
New and modified mechanical, electrical, data cabling, lighting, and fire protection systems are provided to support the modernized design.
