Westside Campus Classroom Building (Phase II)
Central New Mexico Community College, Albuquerque
Central New Mexico Community College (CNM) continues to be integral to the central region of New Mexico as it provides a diverse educational experience for students on a career path and students continuing their education at a four-year institution. To keep pace with CNM’s growing enrollment, VHGA designed a new Classroom Building and a parking area to meet the needs and achieve the goals of CNM’s Planning Department, the faculty, students, and physical plant staff. The classroom addition includes career training laboratories for pharmacy, nursing, and basic sciences. The building was designed in a cost effective manner so that maximum classroom space was attained. The classroom building was designed utilizing U.S. Green Building Council LEED® guidelines to ensure maximum energy efficiency and environmental responsibility. Equally important is the fact that the flexible and functional building is constructed of solid easy to maintain materials that withstand high volume use.
