Michigan Tech Active Learning Center

Michigan Tech engaged BSI to design a new “Active Learning Center” in its Mechanical Engineering Building.

Its innovative design has quickly made it one of the most popular learning areas on campus. Unlike a traditional classroom, the “front focus” of this space has been eliminated. The 360 degree nature of the space allows for more flexibility in its use and helps facilitates group collaboration and “heads down” concentration with hands-on technology available for all students

BSI scope of services included schematic design, detailed design development, finish selection and architectural detailing. We also supplied all of the specialty building products including the custom trusses and monitor mounts, plank carpet tile, LED linear light fixtures, ceiling clouds, glass marker boards and the Herman Miller furnishings. To help Michigan Tech visualize the new space and to get funding, BSI created photo realistic renderings of the Learning Center.
