Eastern Florida State College, Melbourne Campus
8-koi’s wholly-owned subsidiary, CDE, was tasked to design the entire mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems design for this new two-story, 32,000 sq. ft. student union facility. The new building design was integrated into available space of the existing Melbourne campus and tapped into the existing campus cooling loop. CDE performed all work on the cooling loop and central energy plant for the Melbourne Campus.
The new Student Union is home base for student life and was designed based on student input. The two-story glass, brick and steel structure serves as the front door to the campus and includes space for a variety of student services, clubs, activities and student government. A Food Court featuring Chick-Fil-A, Mucho Mahalo Burritos, Genna Pizza Company, Snack Shack and Anaya Coffee Roasters is the hub of the first floor. View food service info & hours.
Also located on the first floor are a Student Lounge with a pool table, three computer stations and video games available for check out, plus the Titan Depot with spirit items, snacks and drinks, and a Student Study Lounge located in Room 105. The Melbourne Campus Student Life office suite is on the second floor. Student Government Association officers, along with the Campus Student Life Coordinator, supervise all activities and student clubs so stop by and get involved. Current Eastern Florida State College students, faculty and staff can reserve conference rooms for small meetings or study groups, including two larger locations (Rooms 208 and 210) on the second floor and a small pop-up conference room on the first floor.
A 250-seat Conference Center on the second floor is available for Campus events and can also be rented for qualifying community functions. The high-tech space can be divided into two rooms, each with a large projector screen, and can be set up with rows of chairs and/or round tables with chairs.
