Northwest Florida State College South Walton Campus
Santa Rosa Beach, Florida
DAG created the initial master plan as well as the design of the first campus buildings for this satellite campus of Northwest Florida State College. The South Walton Center campus focuses on instructional classes for the hospitality industry which is the main economic engine for the area. This first built phase of the campus covers 16 acres of the 30-acre site and includes 6,000 SF of classroom instructional space, a 1,300 SF computer lab, and a 3,600 SF administration building and corporate training center. The school added a designated office and lab area for the Choctawhatchee Basin Alliance. This organization is active in environmental initiatives such as the preservation of the rare coastal dune lakes found in the region. The dense and energy-efficient complex of buildings can be expanded to accommodate future growth.
