Other than a few key administrative personnel, most of the management staff has been moved downstairs in order tofree up valuable programming space and access to natural light on the upper level. Your convenience, safety and enjoyment was foremostin our redesign.New restrooms and convertible meeting space were added to make the building as adaptive as it could be. The gymnasium has newsound-absorbing panels as well as new windows to brighten the space.
