The Vision

The $10 million, 28,500-square-foot Center will incorporate today's most innovative teaching and research technologies into an open, contemporary facility. The Center's main entrance on the west side of the campus will serve as the gateway to the College's busy quad. The Center will be the home of the Landmark College Institute for Research and Training (LCIRT), where fully integrated, campus-wide discovery and applied research happen every day. With two stories of floor-to-ceiling glass windows, the first-floor lobby will offer students and visitors alike an airy, sun-lit gathering space. Another special gathering place will be the second-floor lounge. Large windows will provide an impressive, elevated view of the campus quad and will flood the lounge with natural light. All laboratories in the Center — whether based in Computer Science or in Life Science — will allow inquiry and discovery, and demonstrate that
careers in STEM are highly achievable for students with LD. The Center will serve faculty and students each day and into the evenings. At the end of Spring 2014, a display was added to campus that features the materials that will be used  in the construction of the STI Center. Students were invited to leave their handprints in the concrete footing of the display. Join us on Saturday, August 30, 2014, after Convocation for the groundbreaking ceremony!

The Nicole Goodner MacFarlane Science, Technology & Innovation (STI) Center will be an inviting gathering place for all members of the campus community.

Our Progress

Landmark College's bold strategic plan for transformation, is rapidly moving from concept, to action, to results. And thanks to the generosity of our alumni and friends, we have passed The Groundbreaking for The Nicole Goodner MacFarlane Science, Technology & Innovation (STI) Center. To those who have contributed to "Pioneering Pathways, Changing Lives" campaign, thank you for your early investment in Landmark Colleges’s future.

Visit this page to track our progress as we implement our capital transformation. Using our slide show, look back on the excitement of the past year, and follow along as The Nicole Goodner MacFarlane STI Center continues to take shape.

Next steps – Over the next month we will pour the foundation slab at the North and South end, with exception of the center section, to allow for the completion of the mechanical and electrical under slab work. This process will facilitate the steel erection process.

On Nov. 10th, 2014 we expect steel arrival and the start of steel erection as outlined in this diagram. Please note again that this was the original date for steel arrival and we were able to make up the two weeks due to a late start. The schedule predicts completion of the steel structure to the roof by mid-December, again on schedule. As steel is erected, we will continue with the internal mechanical fit up.
