Great Basin College Campus Enhancement Project

The Great Basin College Foundation commissioned LCA Architects to develop a long-term “Vision Plan” that develops the 47-acre campus into a community wide center for education and cultural events.  The GBC Foundation’s mission for the master plan was to develop a living, learning, teaching, and research environment that reaches out to the community, the state, and the region.
The Vision Plan defined a new campus core with the inclusion of an amphitheater and clock tower plaza, providing an outdoor performance arena for both students and others in the community.
Funding was obtained from a grant from the Donald Reynolds Foundation for the implementation of the vision plan.
