SDSM&T Mineral Industries Building Addition and Renovation

The Clark Enersen Partners worked with the Mineral Industry (MI) program of the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology in the Programming, and Conceptual Design, and Fundraising of a phased renovation of the Mineral Industries Building.  The MI program consists of the Departments of Mining Engineering and Management, Materials and Metallurgical Engineering, and Geology & Geological Engineering.   The renovation seeks to provide a combined facility for all three departments, scheduled for 2018 completion, that will enhance the educational, design, and research collaboration between academic departments and the mining industry. 

Through our initial conceptual design and a vision of a multi-disciplinary and an open program, the ultimate transformation of the facility will greatly enhance learning potential and will attract a reliable and diverse stream of faculty and students.  Additionally, the renovated space will allow the affiliated departments to better serve their respective industries for the foreseeable future.
