New Campus Center
RP Masiello was engaged to lead the design/build effort for the Janeway Educational Center at the Lancaster campus. The center’s defining architectural element is a three-story central tower with a 360-degree illuminated glass feature that shines across the campus like a lighthouse guiding students along their own journey of educational and social development.
The new Janeway Center houses classrooms, a library, an auditorium for 200 and a full-service cafeteria. The center was completed with minimal disruption to campus operations. It’s the highest profile element of our 25-year-plus relationship with Perkins that spans numerous building and renovation projects, including a fitness center, an assisted living facility, a child daycare center and an adult daycare center.
