28,000 sq. ft. | $13 million | Estimated August 2020
Barton Education is providing mechanical, electrical, plumbing and architectural lighting services for the new Kim S. Phipps Admissions and Welcome Center at Messiah University. This project includes the creation of a Peace Park in the center of campus, turning the existing parking into a central campus greenspace. This 28,000 square foot facility will house administrative offices such as financial aid, registrar, marketing, recruiting, and alumni relations as well as group gathering spaces for campus tours. The building will be located in the heart of campus between Eisenhower Campus Center and Boyer Hall and will become the first stop on campus for any prospective, new, or former student. The Welcome Center has officially been named the Kim S. Phipps Admissions and Welcome Center in celebration and appreciation of current Messiah President Kim Phipps and will be dedicated in fall 2020 in conjunction with Messiah University’s official change to University status.
