West Building 10
The newest building on West Campus is three stories and 61,215 square feet. It opened in Spring 2013 and houses Valencia’s Continuing and International Education, as well as the Office of Information Technology, classrooms, a testing center, administrative offices and additional meeting rooms. On its top floor with a view of Lake Pamela and the woods is a high-tech “collaboratory,” an approximately 12,000-square-foot space designed to promote creative discourse for groups ranging in size from three to 80 participants. The intent of the collection of spaces is to provide a place for idea generation, strategic planning, and execution of ideas, faculty, staff, and visiting members of the business community.
Designed by SchenkelShultz Architecture, this building was featured among eight
international projects in Building Design + Construction magazine (June 2012).
This building was certified as Three Green Globes by the Green Building Initiative.
Building 10 has also been certified as Florida Water Star Commercial under the pilot of this program by the St. Johns River Water Management District.
