The Challenge

How do we utilize a relocated post framed (pole barn) building to create a new home for the Ag program while remaining on par with the rest of the campus?

The Solution

21st-century educational spaces were incorporated, providing the Ag Program with quality, equal spaces to those of other programs at the College.
