The Edward St. John Learning and Teaching Center was the first new academic building on the University of Maryland’s McKeldin Mall in 50 years, and is now a centerpiece of the campus. At its peak, up to 14,000 people were expected to use the building each day. There is now 1,830 seats of instructional space throughout its 22 classrooms and labs. It is also home to the Academy of Innovation and Entrepreneurship and the new Teaching and Learning Transformation Center. Space for student interaction includes a number of group study rooms, informal study space, and three cafés.

TCT developed schematic design, design development and 50% construction documents estimates for the project, which entailed demolition, renovation and new construction. The scope included the demolition of the 30,000 GSF Shriver Laboratory and a 6,200 GSF portion of Holzapfel Hall; the renovation of the remaining 28,000 GSF of Holzapfel Hall; and construction of an addition. The project also included related site and utility improvements, storm water management, pedestrian circulation, landscaping, service access and a 5,000 GSF Satellite Central Utility Building (SCUB). The project achieved LEED Gold certification.
