Waynesville Career Center is part of the Waynesville R-VI School District and also serves St. Roberts, Ft. Leonard Wood and seven area high schools. This project includes renovations and additions to an existing 63,000 square foot lumber yard facility into a new 137,100 square foot State-of-the-Art Career Center for the Waynesville R -VI School District.
The design utilized the existing structure by converting the showroom into the core administration area, which includes a 1-1/2 story commons area. An entrance, administration offices, culinary art program (and cafe), library and meeting rooms will be available for use by the community and area organizations. The warehouse was easily converted into the Industrial Arts Shop wing. A 2- Story, 36,000 square foot addition was added to the front of the existing structure to house other career programs, such as Marketing, Health Sciences, Practical Nursing, Graphic Print Shop, Cosmetology and Fine Arts programs. An additional 13,000 square feet of core shell space for future classroom programs was incorporated into the design.
