Sinclair Community College has hired Woolpert for a pair of projects on its Dayton campus, Woolpert said Friday.

The Beavercreek engineering company will redesign Sinclair’s Student Services Center Plaza and renovate a pedestrian path linking the Student Services Center to the parking garage.

The second job is a design of two gateways to the campus, linking with the path, Woolpert said.

“The projects will enhance the appearance of the parking deck facades to make it feel more welcoming, and are intended to improve safety and tie together the main parking garage, the new campus buildings and the original campus north of Fourth Street in downtown Dayton,” Woolpert said in a release.

The projects, valued at a combined $1.36 million, are meant to make the Sinclair campus more pedestrian friendly.

Woolpert Project Manager and Landscape Architect Bruce Rankin said these are two of five projects being coordinated as part of a effort to redefine the core of the downtown campus.

“These projects will have a positive effect not only on Sinclair, but on this area of the city,” Rankin said in Woolpert’s statement.

Woolpert has worked on Sinclair’s Dayton and Mason branches.

Ground will be broken for the campus work in 2018.
