Built using a combination of new construction as well extensive renovation and re-use of a historic building, Carleton College’s new Weitz Center for Creativity spurs the Carleton community toward innovative work and encourages creativity. Located on the Northfield, MN campus, the Weitz Center became the third building at Carleton College to be certified as LEED Gold.
Approximately 11,000 square feet of .080” aluminum panels finished in a Charcoal Gray fluoropolymer finish was used to clad the new construction portion of the project which linked with a historic middle school complex that had adjoining buildings from three different eras.
Design for the project was provided by Meyer Scherer & Rockcastle LTD (MSR), Minneapolis. The firm is known for its renovation and adaptive re-use work.
