Located at the college’s main entry, the Dow Academic Center makes a statement to visitors through four pairs of 12-inch-diameter stainless steel arches rising 20 feet above the roadway. Inside, multiple meeting rooms include large multi-functional assembly space that can be divided into seven smaller rooms, providing maximum flexibility to host trade shows, conferences, performances and graduations. Brookstone installed several complex systems, including partition sensors that detect room configurations and automatically subdivide audio-visual controls. In the lobby, LED light fixtures with 1,000,000 color combinations illuminate the full length of draperies at the window wall.
Extensive site work, including reflecting pools, fountains and a clock tower, required us to carefully plan construction to preserve hundreds of native pecan trees.
