Attached to the Jerome J. Lohr building along Medary Avenue the South Dakota State University Alumni Center project will house both SDSU Foundation and Alumni Association. Journey Construction Professionals were chosen by the Foundation to be their Construction Manager at Risk partner to help lead the project team through preconstruction, construction and owner occupancy.
The alumni center is a two story 16,000 square foot extension to the Jerome J. Lohr building that Journey Construction Professionals constructed over ten years earlier. Academic Education & Assessment and American Indian Education & Cultural Center buildings will be removed. Services provided within these buildings will be relocated on campus to make way for alumni functions including; event space, offices, reception hall, commercial kitchen, hall of fame, and conference rooms. Concrete foundations support a structural steel frame with aluminum storefront, metal panels, and brick veneer skin. Highlighted with an abundance of natural light, warm and inviting finishes will coat interior spaces speaking to the extreme pride that belongs to every SDSU alumni. Construction activities are scheduled to start May 2016 and be complete July 2017.
