The Entrepreneurship Innovation Center locates emergent technology businesses together to enhance their entrepreneurial spirit in a collaborative environment; all in support of Ohio’s shift from manufacturing and agriculture toward a knowledge-based economy. This certified LEED Silver project provides education space, training facilities, and business support amenities specifically suited to the requirements of the technology-based tenant companies. Further amenities include sophisticated conference and distance learning facilities, and highly adaptable tenant suites.
Lincoln Street Studio developed the master plan for the Lorain County Community College’s Great Lakes Technology Park, placed delicately amid the area’s forest and wetlands, and in proximity to the College. The Entrepreneurship Innovation Center anchors the Park and provides a symbolic bridge between the academic and technology transfer communities. In keeping with the technology woods concept of the Park’s development plan, the building was designed to achieve LEED Silver certification, thus setting a benchmark of stewardship and sustainability for the College and further progress of the Park. Our good friends at Clark & Post Architects served as the architect of record and managed the construction process.
