Description: Complete Renovation & New Administration Addition
Middle Bucks Institute of Technology (MBIT) focuses on providing career development, advanced technical training, and pre-professional programs to students in grades 10 through 12. Working closely with the administrative staff at MBIT and the Joint Operating Committee (represents the sending School Districts), GKO Architects designed a revitalization plan for this 145,000-square-foot facility. As part of the renovations, the existing building infrastructure was completely replaced with energy-efficient systems, improvements were made to meet building code and accessibility requirements, and programs were analyzed and restructured for better functionality.
An addition was also constructed to expand the Administrative Offices and address security concerns. Facility security was also enhanced through the provision of a security check-point at the new main entrance. As a prominent feature and focal point on the exterior façade, the new entrance was highlighted with an extended canopy.
