Austin College

Sherman, TX

In 2013, Pritchard Associates completed work on a new 103,000 SF Idea Center at Austin College in Sherman, TX. The center, which is a science building designed for interactive learning and interdisciplinary studies, houses 16 classrooms, 32 advanced laboratory-classrooms, 40 faculty offices, a 108-seat auditorium and an observatory. The center is also home to the College’s departments of biology, chemistry, computer science, environmental studies, mathematics, and physics. Once the project was completed, the building was certified LEED Gold by the U.S. Green Building Council.
