The space was infexible and lacked current technology. The project vision centered on creating a learning environment that was fexible, technology-rich and that evoked the university's brand. Just prior to construction, it was decided to add yet another desired function for the space — a place to conduct board of trustees meetings and other conferences. The renovated 125-seat lecture hall includes both fxed and moveable seating, via the use of a partially sloped foor with the front half located on a single level, allowing the space to adapt to varying section sizes and formats. Groups of varying sizes can be accommodated in moveable rows, a conference or seminar layout and utilizing the front half of the room independently. The enlivened space includes upgraded lighting and fnishes that support Capital University's brand as well as providing an atmosphere for both classroom and formal presentation settings. The space is now highly used, and serves as a showpiece for the university.
