62,000 SF Addition
122,000 SF Renovation
The Rhatigan Student Center is the social, dining, retail and entertainment hub of the WSU campus. This multi-phase project took about three years to complete and gave the student center a much needed new look. The new addition is conventional steel framing with masonry veneers and a tremendous amount of architectural features.
The additions include new dining, gathering and office spaces and a third floor ballroom with an outdoor balcony. The renovations included bookstore improvements, updated office and support space, an updated food court with five different options for customers: Erbert & Gerbert's, Pizza Hut, Taco Bell, Chic Fil A and Fast Break. The basement bowling and recreation center got an updated look as well.
