Trinity International University
Since 1999, EEA has worked with multiple architects to assist Trinity International University on various campus projects.
H.G. Rodine Global Ministry Building
The first project EEA undertook on the Trinity campus was the Rodine Ministry Building, a classroom and office building located in a previously undeveloped, heavily weeded area on the 111-acre campus.
EEA’s work was extensive, as the project involved Master Planning, followed by the design of a new campus ring road, parking areas, a water distribution system, new retention pond in a natural setting, and a wastewater collection system.
EEA assisted Herbert S. Newman and Partners on a new residence hall project, which opening in the fall of 2006 to 182 students. In addition to housing, the hall also accommodates many common spaces for general campus use.
Design and implementation of the project included Master Planning for water distribution, stormwater drainage and detention, and wastewater drainage for much of the campus. Additionally, an existing parking lot was rehabilitated and expanded to serve the increase in student population. Pedestrian and vehicular circulation patterns were then integrated into the historic campus to provide a safe and functional design while being sensitive to existing features, buildings and natural resources. This specific configuration creates geometric site “spaces” for student use and activities.
The Student Center, completed in the spring of 2010, included a substantial expansion to and complete renovation of the existing building, as well as all new site infrastructures adjacent. In addition to utility services, a new parking area and outside student plaza/gathering area were also included in the design.
Most recently, EEA prepared detailed construction drawings for the new student life center, meant to serve as a community gathering space for the entire university.
