Rapid City, SD
10,000 sf of new construction divided between Alumni Association offices and headquarters for the SD Mines Foundation
This new 9,948 sf building, constructed on private property west of South Dakota School of Mines & Technology’s Surbeck Center, will house SD Mines Foundation offices on the second level, with Alumni Association offices on the first level. The center includes meeting and conference rooms and a large event area for SD Mines needs.
TSP designed the two-story building to fit the sloping site. Visitors will find easy access from the street-side entry on the first level as well as the parking-lot entry on the second level. The lot includes 14 spaces and is bordered on one end by a 12-foot-high retaining wall. TSP’s civil engineering team provided water, sewer, and storm sewer services. Their design also expanded the existing stormwater quality/detention pond to accommodate the increased amount of impervious surfaces on the site.
A ribbon-cutting and alumni social will take place at Pearson Alumni & Conference Center at 5 p.m. Sept. 27 during Hardrocker Homecoming Week.
