Valencia Community College Criminal Justice Institute
Valencia Community College’s 77,000-square-foot Criminal Justice Institute is the first building completed for the college’s 58 acre Public Safety campus that was master planned by the firm to include more than 230,000-square-feet of future construction.
In addition, the southwest corner between the lobby and the fitness facility features a cylindrically-shaped café with indoor and outdoor courtyard seating. At the northwest corner, the angular volume of the metal-clad teaching auditorium highlights the facility’s main entrance through the lobby and in the future, the rest of the campus. Other amenities offered by the facility include an outdoor running track, a practice field, a K-9 training facility and a vehicle driving range.
“The key to success in the construction of an attractive, functional, multi-faceted facility is … securing the services of a top-notch architectural planning group,” according to C. David Smith, director of the Criminal Justice Institute. “CTH+A is clearly among the industry leaders. I found them to be open, creative and professional through each of the many steps required to make this innovative state-of-the-art complex a reality.”
