Campus and Community Enhancement
As only the fourth building on the Marine and Environmental Research and Training Station (MERTS) campus, the siting of the building is of high importance. SRG’s design integrates the building into the existing campus and its natural surroundings, while also creating a unique destination and arrival point for the campus that strengthens the sense of place and the maritime identity and brand.

This facility provides the opportunity to reflect the college’s commitment to the future of their community, recognize the importance of access to quality postsecondary education, and be a place for community educational, cultural, and economic participation, leadership and service.
