WSSU CENTER FOR DESIGN INNOVATION > DESIGN FACILITY / HIGHER EDUCATION
Joint Venture Partner — Samet | SRS, Inc
Architect — Calloway Johnson Moore & West
PROJECT DELIVERY —
- Samet and SRS, Inc. teamed with Winston-Salem State University, UNC School of the Arts, and Forsyth Tech Community College to create a shared research, design and classroom facility on a brownfield site on the campus of Winston-Salem State University. This modern center allows for collaborative research across an interdisciplinary spectrum, holding space for research, technology, art and science studies.
- While constructing these contemporary buildings, Samet provided an on-site BIM kiosk where all tradespeople had access to models and drawings. The main facility is a structural steel frame with steel deck, and concrete floors from formed concrete construction. The adjacent “cube” was constructed from twenty 56′ precast panels, requiring DOT permits for transport.

This was a very complex project with a tight schedule, complex site issues and a surrounding environment that could not be disrupted by the construction process. The Samet team did an incredible job constructing this building with these parameters.
