28,000 sq. ft. | $13 million | December 2020
Barton Education provided mechanical, electrical, plumbing and architectural lighting services for the new Kim S. Phipps Admissions and Welcome Center at Messiah University. This project included 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 now houses administrative offices such as financial aid, registrar, marketing, recruiting, and alumni relations as well as group gathering spaces for campus tours. The building is in the heart of campus between Eisenhower Campus Center and Boyer Hall and is 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.
