Pellissippi State Community College – Main Campus

Building Area: 250,000 s.f.

Date of Completion: 1988-1994

Type: New Construction

Location: Knoxville, TN

Budget: $31,000,000

Challenge: Master plan and design a campus for a new state technical community college.

Solution: BarberMcMurry provided master planning, architecture, and project management services for the $31 million college campus. We have worked with the College continuously since 1983. The complex serves as the anchor for the Pellissippi Parkway Technology Corridor.

The first phase features buildings clustered around an exterior plaza from which future expansions are being developed. Four buildings, encompassing 250,000 SF of classroom, laboratory, student services, and office space were initially constructed.

Also completed was a new $6 million library and educational resource center which we designed to be compatible with existing campus structures.
