Edward A. Whitney Academic Center

Sheridan, Wyoming

Morrison-Maierle was hired to provide civil services for the Northern Wyoming Community College District’s project to expand and update the Whitney Building on the northern end of Sheridan College Campus. Demolition and renovation of parts of the existing building contributed to the creation of the Edward A. Whitney Academic Center. The project required reconfiguration of traffic patterns in the vicinity of the structure, and redesign of the water and sanitary systems serving the building.

The college’s two-story, 54,000-square-foot expansion coupled with a 16,000 square-foot renovation on the existing structure required reconfiguration of the access drive and parking areas along with new sidewalk and soft landscaping. Morrison-Maierle provided civil services, which included the asphalt-paved parking lot on the northern side of the building that was re-constructed with concrete pavement and the pavement striping configuration changed from diagonal parking to 90-degree parking. Together, the reconfigured access drive and parking areas created a more functional traffic flow within the campus. Measures to adequately control storm water drainage, through a combination of catch basin/pipe systems and roof drains, were also incorporated into the site.

The new academic center opened in July 2013.
