Transformation - From retail "big box" store to support services building
Mount Nittany Health - Corporate Services Building in Bellefonte, PA
A former large retail "big box" store in Bellefonte, PA has been transformed into the new 33,796 SF Mount Nittany Health Corporate Services Building. Due to the vast expanse of open space, JPT Architects implemented a “small city” office environment design that simulates a town square, neighborhoods, avenues and streets for circulation. The design included dedicated private offices, group work spaces with privacy provisions, conference and meeting rooms, support spaces, infrastructure space and storage along with a break room that resembles the “town square”. This project has consolidated departmental work groups into one location to reduce overall out of pocket costs that come with multiple property leases. Operationally, this work flow structure has enhanced collaboration and improved efficiency among employees working within the space.
