Professors move to renovated building F offices

The east-facing facade of building F has been modernized with aluminum sunshades.

Some Seminole State College of Florida faculty and staff are relocating to their new offices now that renovations to the second floor of building F are complete.

The move, which will bring 27 faculty members to the updated second-floor offices, began at the end of the term on Dec. 17, and is expected to be completed before the end of winter break.

In all, 28 offices were renovated, as well as hallways, meeting rooms and restrooms. The interior walls were painted contemporary shades of bright green and yellow, and the tiling continues the motif established during recent renovations to the adjacent atrium and building L. Renovations were also made to the College’s mail room and the Print Shop/Copy Center. The west-facing exterior façade was covered in a glass wall of reflective windows, and the exterior walkway on the building’s east side was re-floored and lined with aluminum sunshades.

The renovations, completed Oct. 2, represent the final step in Seminole State’s short-term $14.1 million plan to update its Sanford/Lake Mary Campus. The plan also included renovations to the adjacent atrium and the third floor of building L, the oldest building on campus. No further construction projects are planned for the Sanford/Lake Mary Campus in the near term.

The project, completed with Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) principles in mind, uses large windows and natural light to give building F a modern, efficient feel. It is being submitted for LEED certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. If approved, building F would become Seminole State’s second LEED-certified building, following the certification of building L earlier this year.

The Sanford/Lake Mary Campus, the College's first and largest, offers a complete curriculum that is sure to meet even the most unique needs. For more information, please visit the campus homepage.
