Integrated Education Building

Description

Established in the late 1960’s, GateWay Community College campus is located at the center of Phoenix, Arizona’s Discovery Triangle, a zone of focus for redevelopment that connects the city’s academic and research centers.  As the campus’ first new construction in over ten years, the Integrated Education Building (IEB) is the premier facility as part of the College’s urban transformation.

As an anchor in the heart of campus, the building combines five separate programs generally built as standalone structures - literally an entire campus packaged into a robust three-story structure. The IEB integrates mediated classrooms with life and physical science labs, a campus library, learning center, one-stop-shop for student services, and a multi-purpose classroom for performing arts.

Outdoor spaces, both at grade and at the upper levels of the building, provide a popular amenity and an enhancement to student community life.  Such spaces include an accessible roof deck and other educational areas catering to different college and community functions throughout the year.

The IEB is targeting LEED Gold Certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.
