  • Fairmont, West Virginia
  • 80,000 SQ. FT.
  • Architectural and Design Services
  • Project Cost: $15,000,000
  • Completed 2008

Omni Associates – Architects teamed with The Design Alliance to provide architectural services to Fairmont State University in order to renovate and double the size of an existing outdated educational facility. The new $15 million addition involved extensive renovation of the existing two-story Technology Wing of Wallman Hall. Two floors and about 40,000 square feet have been added above the existing building, which encompassed 40,000 square feet of technology labs and classrooms.
The design team was also charged with the task of modernizing a dated façade to compliment the massive renovations and upgrades recently completed on the campus. This glass and metal panel addition transformed the look of the existing brick and pre-cast structure and reoriented the main entrance of the facility.
The new facility houses programs for drafting/design engineering technology, graphics technology and mechanical, civil and electronics engineering technology and occupational safety. It features two large lecture rooms, which are used by multiple departments, and about 12 smaller laboratory classrooms. The building opened for classes in January 2008.
Fairmont State University is part of the West Virginia’s growing high technology corridor with a metro area of about 50,000 residents. With an enrollment of 4,600, FSU offers more than 90 baccalaureate degrees and graduate programs in business, criminal justice, education and human services.
