Edisto Island Community Center (project planning & design)

  • Project Location: Edisto Island, SC
  • Brief Description: Over the summer, the firm secured a project for a community center on Edisto Island which is a ProBono design. The Edisto community contacted the firm for additional drawings and refinements to the rec center. This project is currently in the early phase of design.
  • Project Scope: Refine revit model of rec center.
  • Project Manager: Thomas Jasper
  • Role of the Student: Update floor plans of rec center. Fix room layouts. Fix levels (base constraints). Re-calculate square footage of rec center. Update cartoon set.
  • Experience: The Edisto Island Community Center project was a Clemson studio project that I was fortunate enough to take part in during the spring semester. LS3P took on this community project as ProBono. Due to my extensive experience working on this project, I was tasked with continuing my work for the Edisto Island Community Center. Over the summer, the project was secured, so it is still in the early phase of design. For this week, I was tasked with refining the floor plans for the rec center based on the redlines I was given. Again, the hardest part about this week was narrowing down the square footage of the rec center. The Edisto Community desires for the square footage to be reduced to 25000 square feet, thereby making the project more viable. Therefore, I had to make adjustments to the model until I reached the target amount. So to do this, I reduced the square footage of the locker rooms by altering its layout by adding fewer changing rooms and stalls. In turn, it better reflected the occupancy requirements relative to the building’s size. I also added niches in the corridors so that the circulation of the lobby would flow better, thereby making it safer for egress purposes. Overall, I am grateful that I was asked to continue working on this community center because I am gaining a different experience. This project is an interesting experience for me because the project is pro-bono, so I am being exposed to a different aspect of design that I never had the opportunity to take part in yet until now. The project is community driven which is vastly different from the other projects I worked on at this firm. So, I am excited that I am broadening my knowledge about architecture through this project.
