MU College of Engineering Program and Master Plan

The Clark Enersen Partners completed a master plan and building program for the College of Engineering at the University of Missouri.  At the time, the College occupied 376,000 gross square feet in two primary buildings, and another 35,000 square feet in temporary locations on Campus necessitated by their recent growth. The Master Plan was to identify long term options for growth and expansion of their present complex. Engineering East contains 278,000 gross square feet and is comprised of nine different buildings dating from 1892 to 1991. Engineering West is a stand-alone 98,000 gross square feet building.

The proposed 20-year Master Plan is comprised of seven Phases, which when fully implemented will result in total complex of 560,000 gross square feet. The renovation and new construction outlined in these Phases is estimated at $172,000,000 million and will be phased in over a fourteen-year time period. We designed Phase I of the Master Plan, which razed the 1922 portion of Engineering East, deemed unsuitable for retrofit, and replaced it with a new multistory building. This phase had a project cost of $21,910,000.  These renovations and areas of new construction benefit the departments of Chemical Engineering, Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering, Biological Engineering, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering, and Naval Sciences.  Significant research space was added and improvements were made to teaching laboratories, general classrooms and offices; and to the building exterior, structural, mechanical, electrical and life safety systems.
